PEER MENTORING SUPPORT
Our FREE Peer Support program offers understanding, emotional, social and informational support between people who share similar experiences after brain injury. Mentors and partners are matched based on similar experiences, needs and personal interests. The program is coordinated through local affiliated brain injury associations across Ontario.
Why Be a Partner?
As a Partner in the program, you have the opportunity to learn from someone ‘who has been there’ and can offer you guidance and support based on their own personal experiences living with ABI. Support is provided to you via telephone or internet, based on your preference. This allows you to participate in the program from the comfort of your own home.

Why Be a Mentor?
As a Mentor, you have the opportunity to help others by sharing your experiences and by providing support and information to your partner who has similar lived experience. If being a Mentor interests you, you will undergo comprehensive training in your own community prior to being matched with a Partner.
