Stroke support groups allow stroke survivors to help themselves and other survivors create meaningful lives after stroke.

A sense of empowerment is at the heart of a “self-help” or “mutual-help” group. It can motivate passive “patients” to become thriving survivors and create active new roles for themselves. Stroke creates many physical and emotional challenges. Each stroke survivor faces a unique set of disabilities and losses, and each copes with them in his or her own way. However, the warmth, acceptance and emotional support that a stroke support group offers can often be the key to uncovering the hidden strengths in many survivors and caregivers.

Starting a Stroke Support Group
Stroke families can’t benefit from belonging to a support group if none exist in their community. You can help by organizing a new stroke support group in your community or strengthening an existing one.
