The purpose of the study was to develop and evaluate the feasibility of a community-based peer mentor program to prevent and manage pressure ulcers and identify untreated depression for 20 individuals with spinal-cord injury. Based on this sample, community-based peer mentoring was feasible with positive outcomes for PU prevention; management of PUs and depression; self-management of chronic conditions; and community reintegration.
