What a Peer Mentor is and how they can help you

What is Peer Mentoring?

Peer mentoring is a form of mentorship that usually takes place between a person who has lived through a specific experience (peer mentor) and a person who is new to that experience (the peer mentee). Peer mentoring is available to you either through one-on-one sessions, phone calls, texts or email to help you understand treatment, sharing your status and improving relationships with friends, loved ones and family. We can provide you with support from a trained volunteer who is living with HIV and who will listen to you and support you with your concerns.
