What is Peer Support?

Peer support refers to help and assistance that is given to you by someone like you. Peers are not professionally trained counsellors or therapists, they are people like you who have experienced the loss of a loved one and are on a similar journey of navigating their grief. 

Your grief path is yours alone, and no one else can walk it, and no one else can understand it.

- TERRI IRWIN
