University of Maryland Prince George's Hospital Center is offering you the opportunity to come join our monthly support group for survivors and caregivers.

We recognize that a brain injury is life changing, causing a mix of emotions and stress on a person as well as the entire family.

Our support group provides a safe and supportive environment for survivors and caregivers to gather and share similar experiences. It is open to all brain injury survivors and anyone caring for loved ones with a brain injury.

Why Join this Group?

  • Offer peer support and education to survivors and caregivers
  • Share personal experiences to learn how others cope
  • Provide the opportunity to build relationships, network, and gather information on resources

Did You Know?

  • A traumatic brain injury is defined as a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain? Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of a TBI may range from mild to severe after an injury (CDC).
  • More people are surviving and living with a brain injury largely due to improved emergency medical care.

The leading causes of a TBI include the following:

  • Falls
  • Motor Vehicle-Traffic Crashes
  • Struck by/Against Events
  • Assaults
  • Unknown/Other
