Join Our Peer Support Group
In July 2011, BCCPD launched a new peer support group for people living with a disability. This first group was such a success, a new group is starting November 2/11. And, at participants’ request, this group is extended to 6 weeks.
What is “peer support”?
It is an opportunity for people to exchange ideas and experiences in a confidential, respectful environment. The group will explore many topics, such as:
- Daily living and coping in a changed world
- Relationships with friends, family and others
- Navigating medical systems
- Personal wellness
- Finding joy
- Exploring and sharing ideas about ‘what’s next’.
The group size will be limited to a maximum of 15 and there will be a trained facilitator. Light snacks provided.
Dates: 6 Wednesdays starting November 2, 2011
Time: 1-3 pm
Location: BCCPD, #204- 456 West Broadway
