RPCV Survivor Program Sign-Up

RPCV Survivors Need to Have a Safe Supportive Space to Heal

RPCV Health Crusade created this virtual survivor program specifically for RPCVs who have experienced an incredibly challenging incident during Peace Corps service. We cannot dictate what being a survivor means or designate who is a survivor. That is up to you to determine for yourself. If you are a survivor, please join us in a safe supportive space to work through those feelings.

The peer support sessions are not formal therapy. These are opportunities for discussions with other RPCVs as peers. Please be patient with yourself and each other. Respect each others’ stories. There is no blame or judgement here.

We believe you. And, we believe in you. Use this space to work through your confusion, concerns, fears, and anger. That experience does not define you. The most important part is that you survived it. Now is the time to heal. You can share as much or as little as you want. The support group will work together to decide on the pace and the discussion topics.

Please complete the form below to express your interest in the RPCV-HC survivor peer-support group. Someone from our team will reach out to schedule a follow-up phone call to further assess needs and determine if these support sessions can be a good fit. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we will do our best.

We will not share your information with any other RPCVs, groups, organizations, or agencies.

A few words/sentences would be really helpful!
I understand that these are peer-based support sessions and not formal therapist sessions. These sessions are only intended to provide me with a safe space to share my thoughts with my peers. They are not intended to replace formal therapy.

I have not been promised any specific outcome. I also understand that my peers may offer ideas, options, and suggestions during the sessions. But, it is my responsibility to evaluate and investigate for myself before participating in or following any information offered.

My participation is voluntary and I release RPCV Health Crusade and all participants of any liability, damages, etc. from my participation. I have also read and accept the group's Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

I also will not misrepresent myself. I am participating as an individual and not as a representative of any organization. I will not direct anyone to an external company/organization or try to otherwise profit from my participation. I will not ask (or direct to individuals/organizations) for donations or financial support.

I understand that there could be inherent safety and privacy risks in communicating over the internet. I agree to respect the privacy of all the participants and the conversations. And, I agree to be respectful and tolerant in my participation.
