What is PEEPS?
Patients Encouraging and Engaging Peer Support (PEEPS) is a program that matches teen patients (mentees) with positive young adult role models (mentors) who have had similar medical experiences.
Many young adults with life changing medical experiences were also teens when they had these experiences. For this reason, they have a unique ability to understand and support teens who are currently dealing with similar experiences.
Mentors and mentees have occasional phone or email contact with each other.
