Survivor to Survivor Peer Mentorship Program

DuRING THE COVID-19 PERIOD, mentors are still actively working with mentees - by phone, online video zoom, or face to face through outdoor walks or park visits, if both people are comfortable.

NEW REFERRALS can still be accepted by contacting Karen Tooze at the program phone below.  

Our mentor meetings are carrying on over zoom at this time.

MENTEES CAN ALSO ACCESS THE 24/7 HELPLINE AT 1 800 461-2929 or the online chat on our website.

Our program Final Evaluation Report is now available.  Thanks to Dr. Anne Wagner for all her work and to everyone who participated in the program from 2016-2021.  View the evaluation at:
