How to Find the Traumatic Brain Injury Support Groups Right for You

Written by Tom Crosley
Brain Injuries, Catastrophic Personal Injury

Traumatic brain injury is a life-changing event, for both patients and their families, and each will have different mechanisms of coping with the incident. Finding traumatic brain injury support groups that fit your needs is a must. Groups exist online or in person, all over the country. While physicians may be able to point you in the right direction, many national associations also have directories that can get you in touch with local chapters.

The Brain Injury Association of America is a great resource that can provide information based on your region, as well as other resources for advocacy, getting involved, and just living with such an injury. The National Institutes of Health also provide a tremendous amount of information about support groups, awareness, education, on-going research opportunities, and much more. Groups offer an opportunity for patients and their families to discuss their day-to-day struggles and learn from others about how best to manage certain symptoms or daily activities. Participation is not required, but attendees soon realize that they are not alone. Many people suffer from varying degrees of traumatic brain injuries and are dealing with similar symptoms.

Wherever you go to find support, you must acknowledge your specific needs. Trying several different groups is a great idea to determine which fits your current situation best. Everyone’s needs and outcomes will be different, but traumatic brain injury support groups have been shown to help patients live better, more fulfilling lives. The support from others in similar situations or with family in those situations is unparalleled.
