Can a support group help me accept a traumatic brain injury?

Support groups are extremely helpful to people with traumatic brain injuries. In a support group, people suffering from similar problems can share their situations and receive comfort and encouragement from each other. The latest available treatments for TBI can be discussed and members can give coping suggestions while affirming the positive experiences of others. The assurance is given that “someone else knows what I am going through” as people share their struggle in living with a traumatic brain injury.

If there are no local support groups in your area, check online with the Defense and Veteran’s Brain Injury Center or the Brain Injury Association of America for more information on TBI and support groups.
