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.
