Experimental: MENTOR + Telehealth
This group will complete baseline testing, the MENTOR (Mindfulness, Exercise, and Nutrition To Optimize Resilience) program, and 7-days post baseline testing before beginning a one-year telehealth program.
Behavioral: MENTOR + Telehealth
Participants will live on campus for one week and complete the MENTOR program, which is a course about resilience and how nutrition, exercise and mindfulness help with resilience for individuals with a spinal cord injury. Different experts will cover the three main topics with lectures and application of knowledge through related activities. Participants will then begin a one-year telehealth program at home. The telehealth program will consist of readily available information focusing on nutrition, exercise and mindfulness for individuals with a spinal cord injury and a telehealth coach who will interact on the phone with the participants once every two weeks. This will continue for a total of 26 phone calls until the participant returns for 1-year follow-up testing.
