Support Groups

Due to COVID-19, many of Maine’s brain injury support groups are meeting virtually, outside with special protocols, or have paused their meetings. In addition, some meeting details have temporarily changed. Please be sure to reach out to the facilitator ahead of time to find out the details of the meeting you are interested in.
