Where I live, there has not been a support group within 90 miles. A few months ago, a group was started. In 4 months, 2 groups were cancelled. I am frustrated that first we had none, and then the one we have is not consistant. Also not well advertised.

Does anyone have information on beginning a group. I know how to do groups but I am wondering more about the format of this type of group. I would appreciated any and all information. Thanks

I know that Glen is a member of a support group that seems pretty sucessful and active.  There is a professional theapist involved whom Glen has great respect for, she works at the rehab center associated with the hospital in Glen's area.

Mary,,,, I  did  visit   with  my   re-hab  friend,  and   theripst,   and   she  suggested   contacting   your   State  Brain  Injury  Association  for  instruction  on   forming  a     group....  As  I  have  said  before,   I  feel  very   spoiled,  as   "they"   had  me   interacting  with  a   group  even  while  in   re-hab...  as  a  babe  you may  say,,,,,  I  have  always  known  the    care,  love,   guidence,   instruction,  and  correction  of   my   theripists,  and  fellow   suvivors...   So  I  highly  recomend   help  from  your  local   association  and   Hospital,   so  as  to  keep  the   focus  of  the  support  group   on  a  positive  note, and  also   noticable  to  the  public ( in  new  paper, and  such )  so   the  awareness   of  tbi  is   noticed  in  the    local  community....   Please  pardon  my  spelling,   I  have  been  up  since    4:30   plowing  snow  and  feeding  my  animals,   now  it  is  time   for   breakfast  my  self....  You  are  a   dear  Mary,  and  your  care  for  others   shows...    Let  me  know  how  it  goes, and  the   best  of  success  to  you   and  those  in  your  area.....   your  friend,  always,   glen

Now that’s a tough question to answer, I guess it depends on any given day.  For many survivors it’s not about who but more about why.  Is there a purpose and what the purpose is.  You may ask yourself what did I do to deserve this or you may have…See More
