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.
