Dementia Friend Program

The Dementia Friends program is a global movement started by the Alzheimer's Society of England and Wales. The objective of this program is to change the way the world thinks, acts and talks about dementia. Over the years, this movement has grown to have over 17 million Dementia Friends around the world and more than 50 Dementia programs in over 45 countries.

    Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
  • Nandini
    Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
