Trauma Informed Peer Support Orientation
After four years of healing after the tragedy of October 1, 2017, So Cal Route 91 Heals’ TIPS project is here to help ensure your continued strong recovery and resilience. One way of ensuring that is your connection to other survivors, to receive support, and to have someone to talk to who just knows.
Trauma Informed Peer Support is a program that encourages a connection between two people who have shared a similar experience and the power of that bond to help both people heal. The lived experience between two peer survivors is key to its success of receiving support while also recovering yourself. You can be located anywhere to become a Peer Supporter with the project.
So Cal Route 91 Heals is planning a January 2022 kickoff for the next cohort of the Peer Support project. In advance of that kickoff, they invite you to this informational webinar where you will have the opportunity to hear from current Peer Supporters about their experience, as well as the project timeline, outcomes, specific duties, and expectations. Whether you come to the webinar to learn more about being a Peer Supporter or if you want to receive support yourself, they hope you will come and learn more. This program will be offered on Zoom. The link will be shared in advance of the event.
