Peer Support Program

A spinal cord injury changes life instantly. Everyday activities, once taken for granted, become new and frightening challenges.

SCI PEI’s volunteers speak from personal experience, come from all walks of life, and can be instrumental in allowing new SCI patients to come to terms with their new life.

The support team meets with the spinal cord-injured individual and their family members to guide and support them, together and individually, through the rehabilitation process. They serve as mentors, through their positive attitudes and personal accomplishments, to illustrate that although there are challenges, you can get your life back.
