Peer Support Activities

Peer support is one of the cornerstones of the operations of the Finnish association for heart children and adults and is available through the association in many forms, such as through the activities of regional branches, in closed Facebook peer support groups, in virtual peer discussions, and at various events.

When your child or you yourself are diagnosed with a heart condition, the experiences of others in the same situation help you cope and give you strength. Peer support literally empowers. The association’s trained peer support persons do valuable volunteer work and give you the opportunity to talk and share experiences. Based on their personal experiences, peer support persons have the ability and, above all, the desire to support those in the same situation.

You are not alone!
