Support Groups

Support groups can provide a number of benefits. They connect people who share similar experiences. They encourage meaningful contributions. And they provide education and shared resources.

It all helps build confidence and relationships as people continue their post-injury journey. Click here to see a list of support groups compiled by the Brain Injury Association of Michigan, or find a group below.
