Peer Support

"It was just easier to explain to [the peer support mentor]. You’ve got all these people that have helped you but they’re not in the same predicament as you. [The peer support mentor] has been in that situation. They know what’s going to occur, they know what needs to be done…you could ask them questions, and tips and tricks."

Jordan, young person with SCI
