Support Groups and Mentoring

What are outreach services?

Our outreach services provide additional support and improve outcomes for trauma patients, first responders, and their families.

Trauma Outreach Services provides access to resources, support, and programs that are specifically designed to assist Southwest Floridians as they navigate their recovery.

Knowing that you are not alone – there is support available and someone who understands – is an important part of the healing process. As people rebuild their lives after traumatic injury, the Trauma Center’s Outreach Services can help.

The Trauma Center hosts free monthly support groups for survivors of traumatic injury. For questions, please call (239) 343-1612. 

Peer Mentoring

This program links patients and families with volunteer peer mentors who are survivors of trauma. Lee Health trauma mentors serve as visiting peers during hospital and rehabilitation stays and act as partners in ongoing relationships. This program helps patients to form connections, find assistance, and learn about resources from others who have been there.

If you would be interested in having a mentor or in becoming a mentor, please call (239) 343-1613.
