    Life Lessons with SCIA’s Peer and Family Support Team

    Can having a disability change you?

    The SCIA Peer and Family Support team talk about their lived experiences and the reality of living with a spinal cord injury.Hear from Rob, Dan and Jess about what is truly important, lessons they’ve learnt along the way like patience, advocating for themselves, independence and dealing with mental health.

    Let’s put disability into perspective; changing mindsets, learning from other people, engaging in support and services available and not forget about how important mental health is.

    Spinal cord injury isn’t just doom and gloom, it’s about living your best life and focussing on what brings you joy.
