Peer Mentoring Program

The peer mentoring program at Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation (BIR) sets out to pair up former patients or community members living with spinal cord injury with current patients in inpatient rehabilitation. BIR seeks to pair mentors with patients who have suffered similar injuries, who are close in age or the same gender or who have other similarities.

BIR hosts a peer mentoring group session for mentors on the 1st Thursday of every month and we have an open discussion and question/answer session with current BIR patients.

At the end of a patient’s inpatient stay the patient is welcome to become a mentor himself. The patient may also choose to continue conversation with any of the mentors the patient has met during the patient’s stay.

All of our mentors must go through the Volunteer Services Department at Baylor University Medical Center (BUMC) for TB testing, application process, orientation, parking sticker and I.D. badge. Applicants must also complete a Peer Mentor Orientation with the Spinal Cord Injury Team at BIR.
