Peer Support

A peer counselor is an individual with a disability who will share experiences, provide support and education and serve as a positive role model for the client. Through one-to-one or small group interactions, individuals will gain a better understanding of community resources, will gain access to new information on medical or emotional aspects of disability and will be encouraged to develop and maintain a positive self-image.
