The OBIA Provincial Peer Support Program is coordinated by the Brain Injury Association of Thunder Bay and Area (BIATBA).
We are seeking mentors who are impacted by a brain injury to provide telephone peer support to partners who are living similar experiences. Survivors, family members and unpaid caregivers are all welcome.
For more information, visit http://obia.ca/peer-support2/
Mentors will be provided with free training to provide telephone support to partners. Following the training, mentors will be matched with a partner and will call that partner weekly to provide peer support. Mentors must either have a brain injury themselves, be a family member of someone with a brain injury or must be taking care of someone with a brain injury.
Volunteers must be adults (ages 18+).
