HeartKids Parents as Mentors
HeartKids is growing and we need the help of highly motivated and committed heart kid and Heart Angel parents to join our new program, HeartKids Parents as Mentors.
Whilst every families’ childhood heart disease journey is unique, Mentors can offer practical assistance, share their own story, be a friendly face, a supportive shoulder and voice on the end of the phone.
The HeartKids Parents as Mentors program is modelled on the highly successful USA Stanford Children’s Hospital program regarded internationally as a model making a tremendous impact through best practice. HeartKids funded research tells us that peer to peer support is a powerful and proven means of engaging families and assisting them by reducing uncertainty, increasing connectivity and improving coping mechanisms.
