Request a Peer Mentor
As a caregiver, it is not easy to share your world–to find someone who understands, who will listen without judgment and who has been where you are now. MVCN Peer Mentors are that someone: a source of understanding and hope. They are trained caregivers who possess experience helping caregivers who are supporting a loved one or friend with wounds, illness or injuries.
A Peer Mentor is your connection. They are someone to talk to one-to-one, by phone, chat, text or email– whichever is the most comfortable way for you to share. Because caregiving changes your world, it is most helpful to have a Peer Mentor, a constant companion who will walk beside you for as long as you need.
To Request an MVCN Peer Mentor:
- Join the Military and Veteran Caregiver Peer Support Network.
- In the Online Community, complete the Peer Mentor Application.
- Once you complete the application to request a Peer Mentor, MVCN program staff will review it and contact you to discuss next steps in being assigned a Peer Mentor.
