PeerConnect: Coming Home and Making Life Changes
May 11, 2019 @ 12:00 pm CDT - 1:00 pm CDT
One of the scariest things is going home after a spinal cord injury – going back to everything you’re used to, but everything now seems different and you do not know where to start. If you would like to talk with others who have gone through this or are going through it right now this PeerConnect session is for you! Adjusting to a spinal cord injury can be tough, just know you are not alone!
BACKBONES PeerConnect is a program offering monthly online meetups for people in the spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D) community looking to connect with their peers. Whether you have many years post-injury, or if you are new to the community, PeerConnect is a great way to meet others, share your story, and learn from other people with similar experiences to you.
PeerConnect meetups will be offered monthly via Zoom Video Conferencing. Up to 10 participants with SCI/D will be allowed to register via EventBrite. There will be a waitlist – in the case a registered participant must cancel we will offer the spot to the next person on the list. Participants will be emailed the meeting link a few days prior to the session and the morning of.
PeerConnect sessions will be started and moderated by a person with SCI/D who has experience with peer support and mentoring.
