Where I live, there has not been a support group within 90 miles. A few months ago, a group was started. In 4 months, 2 groups were cancelled. I am frustrated that first we had none, and then the one we have is not consistant. Also not well advertised.

Does anyone have information on beginning a group. I know how to do groups but I am wondering more about the format of this type of group. I would appreciated any and all information. Thanks

I know that Glen is a member of a support group that seems pretty sucessful and active.  There is a professional theapist involved whom Glen has great respect for, she works at the rehab center associated with the hospital in Glen's area.

Mary,,,, I  did  visit   with  my   re-hab  friend,  and   theripst,   and   she  suggested   contacting   your   State  Brain  Injury  Association  for  instruction  on   forming  a     group....  As  I  have  said  before,   I  feel  very   spoiled,  as   "they"   had  me   interacting  with  a   group  even  while  in   re-hab...  as  a  babe  you may  say,,,,,  I  have  always  known  the    care,  love,   guidence,   instruction,  and  correction  of   my   theripists,  and  fellow   suvivors...   So  I  highly  recomend   help  from  your  local   association  and   Hospital,   so  as  to  keep  the   focus  of  the  support  group   on  a  positive  note, and  also   noticable  to  the  public ( in  new  paper, and  such )  so   the  awareness   of  tbi  is   noticed  in  the    local  community....   Please  pardon  my  spelling,   I  have  been  up  since    4:30   plowing  snow  and  feeding  my  animals,   now  it  is  time   for   breakfast  my  self....  You  are  a   dear  Mary,  and  your  care  for  others   shows...    Let  me  know  how  it  goes, and  the   best  of  success  to  you   and  those  in  your  area.....   your  friend,  always,   glen
