Welcome to Young & Restless of Atlanta Stroke TBI Peer Support
Our mission is simple: We offer a forum for listening and sharing. Our goal is to provide a safe place to practice social and life skills and receive education from guest speakers. We all receive inspired learning from others as they face a lifelong disability with many challenges
Young And The Restless Peer Engagement- A young (and young at heart) Stroke/TBI peer support group that meets on the third Thursday of each month.
We are the Young and the Restless of Atlanta, and we know age is only a number.
We welcome the Survivor - the person that has experienced a Traumatic situation and lived, the Caregiver - the person responsible for the care of a survivor, Clinicians - those that have dedicated their life, for the study and use of techniques to prevent or deal with life afterward, and of course, the Ally - the person that has no direct relation to the situation or no family members impacted, but still wants to the help and has a heart for the Stroke/TBI communities at large.
Research has shown that one of the risk factors for a difficult recovery after a stroke is social isolation. Humans are social animals; we need plenty of contact and connection with one another to thrive. But for stroke survivors who may have a wide range of disabilities, social contact can be difficult—even when your family is helping. That is why this support group exists.
