The purpose of our support groups is to create a simple venue where survivors of a brain injury can come together with other survivors, their families, friends, care-partners, and professionals, for the mutual benefit of one another and of the whole group.  Each of our Support Groups provides a two-way street of giving and receiving where a member can feel supported by the group while also supporting others with active/reflective listening, expressing empathy, or by identifying with the same issue; and by doing so, normalize the consequences of a brain injury.  Some essential elements of our Support Groups are:

  • Understanding brain injury
  • Learning about resources and effective professionals in your community
  • Opportunities to be understood by, and understand, others dealing with similar issues
  • Learning self-advocacy strategies from others’ challenges and achievements
  • Enjoying recreational and social activities
  • Finding encouragement, hope, and emotional healing
  • Promoting community involvement and public awareness
  • Ability to express both positive and negative views without being judged or labeled
  • Exploring common needs, strengths, and interests
