Reeve Foundation Virtual Support Groups (SCI)

Online Virtual Support

Separate groups are held for individuals living with quadriplegia, those living with paraplegia, and family members/caregivers so that meetings can focus on the unique needs and challenges of each. Group meetings are led by two facilitators: a mental health professional and a peer with lived experience. Meetings are conducted in an open forum/conversational format and members are encouraged to raise topics and ask questions related to living with paralysis or caregiving that are of interest or concern to them.
