It is a very informal, open forum of people affected by HD in some way or another.

Headway Gauteng, started in 1995, is a registered welfare organisation dedicated to offering various support programmes to survivors of brain injury (BI) and their families. The vast majority of our injured members have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) as result of motor vehicle, motor cycle and pedestrian vehicle accidents, assaults and sporting accidents. We also assist survivors of acquired brain injuries such as stroke. These people have led a full life up until the brain injury, which has caused permanent changes to physical, cognitive, emotional and behavioural processes.

Head Injury Support Group

Head Injury Support Group

The purpose of the group is to provide brain injury survivors and their family members with emotional support; provide survivors and family members with a space within which to process the various losses they may have suffered as a result of the brain injury; and assist with adjustment after brain injury. Patients who may benefit from the group are patients who have suffered brain injuries; patients who have difficulty adjusting to cognitive of physical difficulties after brain injury and who may suffer from mood or anxiety disorders subsequent to brain injury; and patients who are interested in learning about coping strategies to deal with the emotional and cognitive consequences of their brain injury. The group is not suitable for patients who are acutely psychotic or have severe communication difficulties. Please note: This is an open group and patients can join at any time. The cost is R 80 per session (discounted fees available depending on financial need). Booking is essential.
