PeerConnect: Social Time
March 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm GMT-0500 - 7:00 pm GMT-0500
In this challenging time we realize that the SCI/D community has many questions and fears related to Covid-19 and may be feeling isolated.
In light of this, we at BACKBONES have decided STAY CONNECTED and will host more Peer Connect meetings and a series of moderated discussions to share your thoughts or just talk to one another during this time.
Do you have custom hacks for getting equipment and supplies, attendant care, coping with isolation, staying busy, or just want to speak with a group of like-minded people who share your concerns…nothing is off the table.
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 Zoom. 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.
