Peer Support

After a burn injury, it is often helpful to talk to someone who has been through a similar experience (a peer) and has made a successful adjustment. Our peer-mentoring program utilizes the Phoenix Society’s SOAR (Survivors Offering Assistance to Recovery) program, which matches peer mentors with current patients.

For more information, please call the UW Burn Center SOAR Peer Mentor Coordinator, Shelley Wiechman, PhD. at 206-744-4439.
