Peer Support for NICU Families

At CPBF-FBPC, we believe in the power of peer support.   While we are grateful to all the clinicians and caregivers who helped our families, we recognize that being able to connect with someone who has a similar lived experience is incredibly important.

For that reason, we built Canada’s largest NICU parent support network which is moderated by a group of trained peer mentors.

We also created peer support training materials for hospitals, community groups or other institutions, and have posted our training workshops on YouTube.

 

We are also running a microgrant program for hospitals and community organizations who wish to host peer support groups for NICU families.   If you would like more details about our program or are wondering if your group is eligible for funding, please contact Kate Robson at kate.robson@cpbf-fbpc.org.
