icon32 Peer Support at Headway

Peer Support Group is for those individuals who have sustained a mild to moderate brain injury and are having difficulty accepting the losses accompanying such a life-changing event. This group provides a place to find mutual support and encouragement for survivors. By sharing similar experiences, group members overcome isolation, and exchange information and resources. The peer support group provides an environment to release the many different emotions brought up as a result of a brain injury. It is confidential, supportive and nonjudgmental. The group will promote acceptance and healing and help the survivor cope with changes in their life.


icon32 Caregivers Support Group



Caregivers Support Group is for individuals and families who provide support and caregiving to someone who has a brain injury. Members will participate and share in discussion about the demands of caregiving and exchange information on practical resources that will help them cope. This group will provide healthy problem solving techniques, ideas for living with the challenges of care giving and find strengths. The many emotions and feelings that arise from such giving will be explored within the group.
