Support Groups for Neurology Patients

A neurological diagnosis can often be overwhelming and stressful. It is important to have the opportunity to get connected to others who are experiencing the same challenges and questions. Our support groups are filled with people who are at all stages of diagnosis and treatment, and who can offer lots of insights and help. In addition, our support groups are set up to give you more knowledge. That is why we try to have our group evaluation or invited speaker discuss a different topic each time, so you can learn more about coping with and treating your condition.
