SUPPORT GROUPS

Brain injury support groups are important sources of support and information for survivors, families, and professionals.

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
