Peer Mentoring Program

After a traumatic event such as SCI, it often helps to talk to someone who has been through a similar experience (a "peer") and has made a successful adjustment to SCI. Our Peer Mentoring Program matches newly injured SCI inpatients with peer mentors of the same sex and similar age, injury level and life circumstances. For more information, please call the SCI Peer Mentor Coordinator, Chris Garbaccio, at 206-616-8568.
