Bloom's Connect

Peer Support
 

Peer Support:  Peer support is emotional and psychological support given by someone who is in, or has been in, a similar situation as another.

I would like to set up a system of peer mentoring through this website where parents of people with Bloom's can assist other parents, siblings can assist other siblings, and we can assist ourselves.  I would also eventually like to build a system of knowledgeable, appropriate medical providers who can share and assist each other.


I am currently taking information from people who wish to be peers or be matched with a peer.  This will be heavily monitored and will be done in accordance with appropriate legal advice on my end.  Para-Professional support will be provided to mentors.

 

If you wish to be matched as either a mentor or mentee:  please send an email to info@bloomsconnect.org with the subject line either mentor or mentee.   You will be contacted and asked to provide some information that will better assist us in making an appropriate match.
