Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Peer Mentoring Service

The Peer Mentoring Program at Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) is a consumer-to-consumer service that provides a way for persons who are recovering from a disability to learn, gain increased independence and become empowered.

RIM provides these services in collaboration with Michigan Paralyzed Veterans of America.

Peer Mentoring Services

Peer mentors and volunteers are trained to help disabled persons recover their independence and confidence.

Peer Mentors:

  • Work with individuals to provide coping strategies
  • Share information and awareness about the disability community and culture
  • Help promote personal growth by sharing their own experiences and explaining how they have coped with the "ups and downs" of living with a disability
  • Help people with disabilities achieve a level of empowerment where they, too, will become peer mentors

Discussion topics may include:

  • Disability awareness
  • Advocacy
  • Stress management
  • Communication skills
  • Personal growth
  • Self determination
  • Independent living
  • Employment skills
  • Community resources
