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
