THRIVE Peer Support Collaborative

In support of the THRIVE initiative, the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) is proud to fund the third round of seed grants to foster an international network of in-person support groups linking survivors of critical illness and their families. These groups will offer survivors mutual support and the opportunity to share solutions to the challenges of recovery after an intensive care unit (ICU) stay.

The goal of these grants is not to fund ICU follow-up clinics but rather to develop peer-support models with strong survivor co-leadership as the foundation for growing an international network.

Applications are now open and close on November 3, 2017.

If you have any questions, please contact SCCM staff partner Adair Andrews.

Volunteer Opportunities Available for Phase 2 of the THRIVE Program

The THRIVE initiative aims to help educate patients, their families, and the healthcare community about post-intensive care syndrome (PICS) and provides resources for how to thrive after an ICU stay. There are a few openings for members to serve on the THRIVE Task Force. Interested members should send an email to with a brief statement on why you are interested in serving.
