What is peer support?
Peer support is simple. It's support that comes from someone like us.
Peer support happens all the time: when you share stories at the park with someone you just met, offer quiet looks of solidarity in the checkout line at the grocery store, and when you call that longtime friend who also just had their first baby.
It can also be structured and take place in groups and one-to-one with mentors. Peer support offers a chance to be heard and talk about hard things, all free of judgment!
More than anything else, peer support helps us remember we are not alone.
Peer support has many super powers.
