We Are Here For You
A Peer Supporter is available Monday through Thursday in our community room. This volunteer, who has experienced an acquired brain injury themselves, is trained to support new members, facilitate group conversations, answer questions about brain injury and refer survivors to useful community resources. They pass on useful coping techniques and share their experiences with other survivors and their families.
Peer Support allows individuals who have an acquired brain injury to work through their challenges in a supportive and safe environment with mentors that understand what they are going through. We have found peer support to be an extremely useful way to help survivors deal with the repercussions of acquired brain injury.
Come meet with our Intake Coordinator for an appointment and more information about this program!
Runs: Monday – Thursday from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m
"Since my brain injury in 2003 the Victoria Brain Injury Society has provided me with hope and understanding, as well as giving me an opportunity to help others through the Peer Support program.
The society has empowered the peer support members to discover themselves through their program and through counselling.
I wish to thank them all for a second change at leading a productive life in the community"
