Why Attend A Support Group Meeting?

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

  • Share common needs and strengths

  • Provide a place to meet new friends and find new connections in the community

  • Provide a safe place to find courage and take risks

  • Provide an opportunity to socialize

  • Provide and environment where positive and negative views can be expressed without being judged
