Pediatric Caregiver Peer Support

The purpose of the Pediatric Caregiver Support Group is to provide caregivers of children with an ABI with an opportunity to increase their knowledge of available resources, increase the size of their social support network and strengthen their overall coping with difficulties associated with caregiving.

This program is facilitated by a social worker with experience supporting care partners. The sessions are designed to provide a safe space generating connectedness and empowering participants to share their vulnerabilities. 

During these sessions, the groups will progress through various topics to support mental well-being, resilience and understanding.

Benefits include: 
• Improving understanding of brain injury
• Reducing anxiety and depression
• Increasing self-awareness
• Developing strategies to cope with stress and isolation
• Learning new skills and improving coping skills to deal with the challenges faced as a caregiver to a child living with a brain injury.
In order to participate, you will need to register, as groups fill up quickly. Please register by emailing psg@biawe.com your name, phone number and email address. As this group session runs concurrently with the Children’s Peer Support Group, please indicate whether or not your child/children will be attending that group and list their age(s).
