BIAC sponsors approximately 18 support groups throughout Connecticut, giving individuals with brain injuries and their caregivers the opportunity to connect and share their stories. Click Here for current listing of the support groups in Connecticut.
Facilitated by both an individual with a brain injury or a family member, and a professional, the support groups are extremely fluid in responding to the interests of their attendees. While most groups are open and welcome all individuals with brain injuries who wish to attend, several of BIAC’s Support Groups focus on individuals with a commonality that helps direct the content so that it is relevant to their current situation.
There are groups for individuals who have an acquired brain injury due to stroke, for working individuals and for veterans with brain injury, just to name a few.
Individual support groups occasionally host guest speakers at their meetings or plan special social events. Check back frequently to see if there are any upcoming presentations that may be of interest to you.
