Talking with people who have been through a similar experience and who understand what you’re going through can be really helpful and encouraging. To put people in touch, SII provide a peer mentoring programme called ‘Someone Like Me’ from the National Rehabilitation Hospital. We can also arrange for a peer volunteer to visit you in an acute hospital or talk to you by phone. To find out more go to Someone Like Me.
While in the National Rehabilitation Hospital you will meet our Activities Facilitator who will show you the social and sporting activities that you can get involved in. You can find out more about this here.
