Support Groups

We're Here for You

Our commitment to you goes beyond the walls of our hospitals and clinics. We provide former and current patients the support they need long after they are discharged. Many of these groups are organized by our dedicated staff and former patients who are now mentors.

Christopher and Dana Reeve Peer Mentorship Program

Dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation awarded Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation a Quality of Life grant to fund its Peer Mentoring Program. This program provides people living with paralysis, their family members and caregivers a connection for hope, support and a way of moving forward with life. Individual peer visits and group sessions are provided to patients in rehab. Even after discharge from the hospital, the program provides ongoing support to navigate challenges when integrating back home and into the community. For more information, contact Lea Goad at [email protected] or call 214.820.9578.
