Find a Mentor / Be a Mentor

Peer mentoring takes place between a peer mentor who has adjusted and progressed in spite of a spinal cord injury or disease and a peer mentee who is newly spinal cord injured or diagnosed with a spinal disease. Peer mentors can help peer mentees adjust to life with a spinal cord injury as well as with health, social and lifestyle issues that the peer is experiencing. When someone becomes part of a peer mentoring program, they greatly benefit and dramatically shorten the time it takes to reach their new goals. Contact us to learn more about peer mentoring.
