OBIA’s Provincial Peer Support Program connects persons with lived
experience (the Mentor) with an individual who is living with the effects of acquired brain injury who requires the support (the Partner). The program is available to survivors, family members and/or unpaid
Mentor/Partner matches are time specific and are made based on similar
experiences, needs, and personal interests. The program is coordinated
through the local brain injury associations across Ontario, making it
possible for people to be matched province-wide.
- 82% of Mentors say that being a Mentor improved their quality of life!
- 90% of Partners recommend the Peer Support Program.
