Talk T1D Peer Support

One-on-one support to people who are impacted by type 1 diabetes (T1D) from trained volunteers who have been there.

Looking for someone to talk to? You are not alone.

Talk T1D is a program that provides one-on-one support to adults who are impacted by T1D from trained volunteers who have been there. Our volunteers understand the daily challenges of living with T1D and are there to provide emotional support and connect you with resources across Canada.

*Please note that the peer mentoring program is currently available only to people aged 18+.

JDRF also offers a community support group through Facebook, where teens and adults are welcome. Connect with your peers on our JDRF T1D Support group:
