Why Join a Support Group?

  • Emotional healing comes through interpersonal contact

  • Sharing of similar experiences helps members feel less isolated and
    more empowered to deal with daily challenges

  • Encouragement develops from learning about the achievements of
    others that have overcome similar difficulties

  • Contribution helps support group members feel useful and gives
    meaning to their lives

  • If you are interested in starting a support group and consideration for Brain Injury Association of Georgia affiliation contact us at – info@braininjurygeorgia.org
  • Education results from the exchange of information and personal
    experiences

  • Socialization establishes and maintains important connections with
    people and enhances confidence in social skills

  • Self-expression, as emotions are experienced and released, creates a
    greater understanding of oneself and one’s capabilities

  • Confidence building results as members self-direct the support group
    and work on the problems they all have in common

  • Safety, in the context of a confidential, supportive, non-judgmental
    environment, allows for honest self-expression and confidence building

  • A Sense of Growth occurs as long-term members see new participants
    and reminisce about where they began and how far they have come in their
    personal journey
