Support Groups

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.
