The impact of brain injury is life changing for survivors, caregivers, and other family members. While every situation is unique, families still face similar challenges. Support groups provide an opportunity to connect with families and professionals who understand your experiences, inspire learning, healing, empowerment and hope.
Open Forum Support Group
“Open forum” support groups are a space where you can build community with other caregivers by encouraging and guiding one another in a meaningful way. In open forum support groups, you can talk openly about your feelings without judgment, and reduce feelings of loneliness, isolation, and depression.
Sibling Support Group
“Sibling” support groups encourage brothers and sisters of children with acquired brain injury to meet other siblings and talk about their experiences, thoughts, feelings, and challenges. Siblings learn effective coping skills to manage difficult emotions and explore new perspectives of living with a sibling with a brain injury. Siblings also have fun playing games, laughing, and talking to other children they relate to.
Grupo de Apoyo
“Grupo de Apoyo” es un espacio donde puede construir una comunidad con otros padres, animándose y guiándose unos a otros de manera significativa. En los grupos de apoyo puede hablar abiertamente sobre sus sentimientos sin juzgar, reducir los sentimientos de soledad, aislamiento y depression.
Focused Support Groups
“Focused” support groups allow professionals to present on various topics related to pediatric brain injury and support for caregivers. You will have opportunities to increase understanding about brain injury, get feedback about treatment options, and learn about local, state, and federal resources.
