Why Attend A Support Group Meeting?

The purpose of a support group is to share with and support one another for the mutual benefit of the whole group. Some essential elements of a support group are:

  • Understanding brain injury
  • Learning about resources in your community
  • Emotional healing
  • Socialization
  • Finding encouragement and hope
  • Active, involved listening to and learning from others
  • Sharing
  • An opportunity to be understood and to express oneself
  • Providing an atmosphere where positive and negative views can be expressed without being judged or labeled
  • Exploring common needs and strengths
  • A place to find courage and to take risks
