Support Groups for those Living with Brain or Spinal Cord Injury
The purpose of a support group is to provide an environment in which members can share emotions and experiences and support one another for the mutual benefit of the total group. A successful support group is one in which the individual members feel emotionally supported, provide support to other members, receive information that helps them manage their situation, and develop ways to cope.
Groups vary widely in size and format. The most important aspects of the support group are confidentiality, mutual trust, understanding, involvement of members helping each other and getting the information and support they need.
