Peer support

Main Content

It's not unusual to feel depressed, angry or alone when you experience a loss of sight. There will probably be times when you wish you had someone to help you work through these feelings. If you're struggling to overcome the emotional challenges of sight loss, we're here for you. Peer support groups are held in areas across British Columbia and in Whitehorse, YT. Peer mentors are also available over the phone. They give you the opportunity to connect with others who are living with sight loss.

Participate in our peer support program by contacting Shoko Kitano, program lead, peer support toll-free at 1-800-563-2642 ext. 6006 or email
