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 dedicate this website to our friend and group leader, Roger Brathwaite, who passed away in June of 2023. We are heartbroken to lose such a champion of disability rights.
Roger Brathwaite, Founder
You were loved and will be missed. Thank you for your wonderful smile and servant leadership. Your life was well lived and we miss you.

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.
