Support Groups

Cole Neuroscience Center


It always helps to talk with people who know what you are going through, particularly when you are dealing with the debilitating effects of a neurological disease. Often, the effects of neurological diseases can be very puzzling and frustrating for caregivers. Those who have been dealing with neurological diseases for quite some time can prepare you for what to expect and help you learn how to cope. Support groups are an invaluable resource for dealing with a loved one's illness and the long-term effects of the disease. The following is a list of support groups offered through the Cole Neuroscience Center:
