How can a peer counselor help me with my prosthesis?

In prosthetics, a peer counselor is someone who has been a prosthetic user for a while and is trained in talking to new users. Usually a peer counselor will be the same age and gender as you are and will have a similar prosthesis as you. These counselors can not only give you one-on-one moral support, but practical advice on how to adapt and what to expect from the prosthetics process. Even more help can be found in private counseling or support groups for amputees.
