Join A Support Group

A family faces many changes following a brain injury. Every situation is unique, but a support group brings people together who share a similar experience so they can learn and heal together. We currently offer two groups, with more on the way. If you are the caregiver of a person living with a brain injury, or if you have experienced a brain injury yourself, please click “Find a Support Group” and fill out our form. We’ll do our best to find you a group to help in your journey.
