Summit County - Brain Injury Support Group

Brain Injury survivors + their family, friends and caregivers are welcome. This support group is a place where survivors and loved ones can hear how others are living their lives post brain injury, and be heard as they share their experiences. We focus on inviting medical and holistic health providers to share how they contribute to the brain injury healing process, exploring restorative and calming strategies to cope with brain injury symptoms, and offering socialization opportunities. This group is free, meets monthly, and has a different topic or agenda for each meeting. Date, time, and location vary. This group is supported through Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado, St. Anthony’s Summit Medical Center, and Avalanche Physical Therapy in Frisco, Colorado.

St. Anthony’s Summit Medical Center
Address: 340 Peak One Dr., Frisco, CO 80443
Meeting location will be at St. Anthony's Summit Medical Center but can vary based on the activity. Date and time vary as well so please call or email to confirm.
