Why Attend a Support Group?

The purpose of a support group is to learn more about brain injury and available services by meeting with others who are facing or have faced similar challenges. The essential elements of a support group are:

  • Gather information for navigating the difficult path of rehabilitation after a brain injury
  • Share common needs and strengths
  • Provide a place to socialize, meet new friends and find new connections in the community
  • Provide a safe place to receive/provide emotional support, find courage, and take risks
  • Provide an environment where positive and negative views can be expressed without being judged

Start a support group!

If you do not find a support group in your area, contact the Brain Injury Association of NC to learn about resources in your area, or let us know if you want to help get a new group started.
