P – Peer Mentors

Peer mentors are invaluable resources while on the grief and trauma healing journey. Mentors may provide a safe place to talk about issues that non-grieving and non-traumatized individuals may not understand. Mentors can provide a sense of normalcy when the new world view looks upside down.  Peers may accelerate your healing by:

  • promoting your social inclusion, support, and connection
  • building your resilience and instilling a sense of hope
  • enhancing your overall social and emotional wellness
  • empowering you with a sense of “normalcy”
