Peer Support Program

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 peer support generally takes place over the phone once a week.

The program is coordinated through the local brain injury associations across Ontario, making it possible for people to be matched province-wide.

The program is open to both survivors of brain injury and caregivers.
