PHenomenal Connections Peer-to-Peer Pilot Program

Fill out the form here to get started!

If you, a family member, or a friend has been diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension (PH) it may be helpful to speak with someone who has gone through a similar experience and learned how to manage the condition. PHenomenal Connections is a free Team PHenomenal Hope service that connects patients to a trained peer supporter. We invite you to volunteer!

Volunteers-Peer Supporter
Are you a PH patient who can share your experience with someone currently facing a diagnosis? PHenomenal Connections matches trained peer supporters living with PH to other patients and provides understanding and hope to those who need support after receiving a PH diagnosis. This is a rewarding volunteer opportunity to establish and build quality relationships with people who need your help.    

Patients are matched based on the type of PH, age, gender, and other factors that may foster a beneficial connection and ease of communication. Peer volunteers are trained in basic counseling skills, are regularly updated about TPH and community resources, and are committed to confidentiality.

This is a virtual volunteer opportunity. Trained volunteers connect with individuals through the TPH website, via phone, email, or text.

Time Commitment
Monthly time commitment varies based on your preferences and the number of requests received. Scheduling is flexible. 

PHenomenal Connections volunteers must complete training to help ensure efficiency and quality. Volunteers will gain skill-based knowledge and learn to foster collaboration, communication, and problem-solving skills while sharing coping strategies and lived experience exchange in a relaxed and informal environment.

Peer Supporters allow fellow patients to express feelings, discuss concerns, ask questions, and form a community. PHenomenal Connections volunteers offer understanding, support, and hope. This is a rewarding volunteer opportunity for people who enjoy individual interaction, desire a flexible schedule, and can encourage those in need.

Peer Supporter Positions and Responsibilities
Peer Supporters must have a diagnosis of PH for at least five years and a willingness to listen and provide encouragement and support. Training and periodic meetings with other mentors and TPH staff are required to discuss progress, offer insight, and provide ongoing support. We seek individuals of all ages, diverse backgrounds, and/or languages.
