National Peer-Matching Organizations

Similar One-on-One Networks

If we are unable to make a satisfactory match, we often contact these similar one-on-one organizations to see if they have someone that would be appropriate. We do not share the patient's contact information but rather just the pertinent diagnosis details so the patient may then contact the appropriate organization directly.
