PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM
The Provincial Peer Support Program connects persons with lived experience (the Mentor) with an individual who is living with the effects of acquired brain injury who requires the support (the Partner). The program is available to survivors, family members and/or unpaid caregivers.
Mentor/Partner matches are time specific and are made based on similar experiences, needs and personal interests. The program is coordinated through the local brain injury associations across Ontario, making it possible for people to be ‘matched’ province wide.
82% of Mentors say that being a Mentor improved their quality of life!
90% of Partners recommend the Peer Support Program.
