Peer Support for Families of Persons with a Developmental Disability

October 13 @ 7:00 pm 8:00 pm

Peer support is a way for families and caregivers to find help and support from others in their community with a similar and/or shared experience. Peer Support offers an opportunity to share information and build connections for your well-being and that of the person you support. This webinar will feature a panel of family caregivers who support individuals with developmental disabilities. They will share their experiences seeking out peer support through Family Support Networks, starting their own Family Support Networks, and the overall benefits of peer support.

Join us to learn about:

• Peer Support and its benefits

• Family Support Networks and how to connect with one in your community

• Personal stories on why seeking and providing peer support is beneficial
