VIRTUAL SUPPORT GROUPS
Brain Injury Association of Colorado
Support Groups offer a welcoming space in which survivors of a brain injury can come together with other survivors & their loved ones. Support Groups create a two-way street of giving and receiving where a member can feel supported by the group while also supporting others who may be experiencing some of the same things that they are.
Support Groups can assist survivors & their loved ones in: understanding brain injury, finding community resources, learning self-advocacy strategies, finding encouragement, hope, and emotional healing, reducing feelings of isolation, building a sense of community.
The Brain Injury Association of Colorado has an extensive list of group opportunities. Groups are organized by region, type of brain injury, age, veteran status, gender and race. Groups for caregivers are also listed.

The meetings are designed to bring you information and resources focused on our pillars of brain health. This will be done on a rotational schedule with several guest speakers and detailed content.
Meeting times: Every other Tuesday @ 7pm EST virtually via Zoom
