Ithaca, New York: Traumatic Brain Injury Support Group Forms

A new traumatic brain injury support group has been started in Ithaca, New York.  The group's first meeting is this Wednesday from 2:30-4:30 p.m.  at the First Unitarian Church of Ithaca, 306 N. Aurora St.  Subsequnet meetings will be held on the last Wednesday of each month.

This group is designed to support adults who are experiencing a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) as a
result of stroke, brain tumor, vestibular dysfunction or accidental head trauma. The focus of the group is
to support one another to face the challenges that result from such injury: loss of employment,
financial stressors, impact on family dynamics, self esteem challenges, how to redefine oneself with
these new circumstances, commitment to maintain a positive outlook, and live life fully.

You can obtain further information by contacting  Daniela Hess Scholl at 539.1114
