Brain injuries can make survivors, families and friends feel isolated, lonely and overwhelmed. Staying connected with your friends and family, creating a new community, or joining a support group can help prevent isolation and loneliness.
Support groups provide a safe space for people to gather where they can share their stories, have fun, and guide each other through difficult times. Many support groups host social events, bring in guest speakers, and are often led by people with a vast knowledge of brain injury. We encourage you to get connected and establish your community today.
Support group information provided here is frequently updated with new contact information and groups as we receive it. Email the OABI if you want to add a brain injury support group or update any information.
Note: The information provided might not be all inclusive of support groups in your area, and meeting information can change without our knowledge. We encourage you to reach out to the support group contact to get more information before attending meetings.
