Have you ever taken a fall and hit your head? Sustained a stroke or other unique challenge to the brain? Cognitive trauma can effect all aspects of life for a survivor, their family, and the communities in which they reside, yet millions are impacted by the invisible issues of brain injury every year before being encouraged to reengage life personally and professionally as though nothing has changed.
Regardless of a trauma's severity all of our lives must go on tomorrow. Rather than merely a support group this Meetup promotes empowering understanding, shared resources, and a few well-earned laughs for everyone involved along that path back into life. The consequential trauma sustained when re-engaging socially, professionally, and personally within a world which does not understand reintegration strategies for stability and health post-trauma is almost as painful as the original injury. Please consider this a TBI Opportunity Group built upon shared experience and support, then come and join us for a cup of coffee and some healthy activity to move forward with your goals and show that no one can be defined solely by challenging circumstance or injury. Building with one another upon such individual challenges this community is encouraging its members along the path to health and Functional Reintegration, all the while enjoying that next positive step into the future.
