A welcoming place to find support and share what you've learned with others.
Patients and family members often feel isolated by their condition or circumstances. Under the guidance of a trained professional, support group participants can share experiences, discuss coping strategies, and increase knowledge of disease-related topics. They also offer support and encouragement to each other.
Some additional benefits include:
- Meeting people coping with similar experiences
- Learning about resources
- Finding solutions for disease-related challenges
- Experiencing a safe environment in which to discuss difficult issues
- Increasing sense of well-being
Current support groups at the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health:
- All support groups are open to the community and are offered free of charge.
- Individuals are welcome to drop in; no reservation is needed.
For individuals who are gene-positive or are at risk, and for adult family members and caregivers.
