Lots of groups meet at The Brain Charity, as you can see below. Support groups offer a way for people affected by a condition to share experiences and gain an understanding of how a condition can affect others. Support groups are a great way of meeting new people and learning new coping strategies to help through illness to recovery.
It can be daunting to join a new group at first but everybody in that group will understand how it feels to be the new person so you can be sure of a warm welcome.
Join us in our café, meet new friends and old.
