This is a Support Group for individuals with brain injuries,
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (MTBI ), and Caregivers in the
Newburgh, NY and the surrounding areas.
Veterans and spouses are welcome.
Social interaction is extremely important for people with brain injuries. A survivor is often unseen and unrecognized by the uninjured or uninvolved. When we speak about our deficits, a common reply is, “Oh, I have the same problems!". Socializing promotes inspiration, happiness, acceptance, competition, building relationships, and amazingly, strength. Our support groups are small, and we need to grow. Could the service coordinators help their clients with transportation to our support groups? Could survivors with many years of experience, come out and help? Could everyone get off the couch and do something?
