Helpful Heads Peer Support

Helpful Heads Peer Support (Canterbury Region)

A free Traumatic Brain Injury Peer Support Service for people with TBI (concussion/moderate/severe) and those that support them.

What is Peer Support?

  • Peer Support is when people use their own experiences to help each other, sharing knowledge or providing emotional support, social interaction or practical help.

People with a brain injury (incl. concussion) and their support networks can feel very isolated and misunderstood.

Helpful Heads has a number of volunteers who have lived experience of brain injury (either with an injury themselves, or through supporting someone who does) who would love to help others going through a similar experience.

There’s nothing quite like talking with someone who understands what you are going through.

If you want to talk to someone, or would like to be a volunteer, please contact:
