Peer Mentoring Program

A peer mentor empowers fellow patients to move forward with their lives after being diagnosed with ESRD. Peer mentoring provides support and increases the confidence that many new patients need, and offers patients access to someone who has been through similar experiences and can understand their concerns.

Peer mentors can:
  • Providing information,
  • Listening to concerns,
  • Sharing experiences,
  • Promoting positive behavior;
  • Offering encouragement; and
  • Relieving anxiety.
