Trauma Survivors Support Groups

After leaving the hospital or rehabilitation facility, the Trauma Survivors Support Group provides an opportunity that allows trauma survivors and their families to connect with other survivors. When you have experienced a major event in your life, like being injured, it is helpful to talk with others. We can learn by talking to other survivors and sharing how we deal with the challenges of recovery.
