My name is Marie-Terese Henderson. I have been the Chairperson of the Central Florida Brain Injury Support Group formally the Orlando Brain Injury Support Group since 2007 & traumatic brain injury survivor of 19 years. We are traumatic brain injury support group that meet once a month for socialization, educational speakers and to share community resources.
We promote brain injury survivors to be proactive in their recovery. We provide resources to choose from in hopes of a successful positive productive result for our community and to reflect the benefits we as brain injury survivors have to offer. We concentrate on what we “Can Do”. Together our voices echo forward with love and peace for all. Together we can each build a strong link I the chain of brain injury recovery through friendship and support.
Our duty is to fulfill the needs of the Brain Injury Survivors. We are Brain Injury Survivor driven and self supported through our own contributions and individual donations. Brain Injury Survivors have the opportunity to support one another in a safe environment of empathy and understanding, where difficulties and emotions can be discussed freely without judgment and new friendships can be forged. This is where individual needs and compensation strategies can be shared because it is often from others in like situations that the best solutions to problems can be found.
It is important to Build Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Awareness for the 210,000 people that live with the long term challenges due to a TBI who call Florida home. This include children and 62% of veterans who face a life time living in the TBI world.
Meetings are every 3rd Wednesday of the month.
