HOW TO FIND A SUPPORT GROUP
How to Find a Support Group
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
Have you ever needed a support group? Needed the help of others to assist you with the problems that life throws at you? Have you been open to asking for and accepting the help offered? Or are you like me––struggling to stand alone––and thinking you can go it alone?
Be SMART! Check out the possibilities below.
Your healthcare provider may be able to offer assistance. doctor, nurse, social worker, chaplain or psychologist
Google It! Search the Internet. Online support groups are available on social media sites like Facebook.
Local centers like libraries, churches, or synagogues may be able to direct you to an appropriate support group.
Check your local listings. Search your local telephone book (Does anyone even have a phone book anymore?) or check your local newspaper for support resources.
Ask family, friends, or anyone who knows someone with a brain injury for support group suggestions.
Contact a state or national organization affiliated with brain injury.
Contact the Brain Injury Association of America to find support groups in your state. http://www.biausa.org/
