WHAT WE DO

We are an online community for women suffering with post concussion symptoms. We strive to create real relationships and connections between those who have struggled with life after a brain injury. Our main message is: you are not alone!

 

All women (18 and older) who have had a TBI and have had lasting symptoms associated with their injury (longer than one month) are encouraged to apply to be a part of our community.

Once your application is accepted, you will be placed into a session with other traumatic brain injury survivors who are interested in the same topics as you! Members will be divided into two groups: participants and listeners. This means that you can be a part of our community regardless of where you are in your recovery or your willingness to share your story to others in a video setting.

Meetings will be a supportive place where members can share what obstacles they have overcome, and what specific strategies or activities have helped (or not helped) them throughout their TBI journey. For each meeting there will be a different topic, and a moderator will help keep the conversation going by providing questions for each topic before the meeting.

After the meetings, you can communicate with other members of your session in a message board on this website (here)! This is a great place to expand on what was talked about during the meeting, or to vent your frustrations about what you're going through to people who understand. A meeting summary will also be available to all members of the session, which will contain the specific strategies or activities that were mentioned in the meeting so you don't have to remember everything.

Applicants may be put on a waiting list, depending on the amount of applications that are received. We plan to start sessions every 8 to 10 weeks. See our Updates section on our home page (here) or subscribe to our mailing list (at the bottom of the page) for up to date information on when the next session(s) will start! 

OUR MISSION

  • To share and spread knowledge and experiences about navigating post concussion symptoms in a positive and supportive environment through the sharing of each individual’s personal traumatic brain injury (TBI) journey

  • To share those experiences with those who are in need of guidance and emotional support

MEMBERS CAN EITHER BE A PARTICIPANT OR A LISTENER

Participants

  • Those who would like to actively be a part of the conversation during the video meetings. They are interested in sharing what has been helpful or not helpful for them in their personal TBI journey

  • The number of participants that are allowed in each session are limited to promote true connections and reduce overstimulation during meetings (4 to 5 participants per session on average) 

Listeners

  • Those who do not want to share during the video meetings, but would like to listen to the participants’ experiences

  • Ideal for those whose injury has been more recent

  • Listeners will have the opportunity to communicate with all members of their session in the community message board after each meeting on this website

Moderator

  • Someone who has personally experienced post-concussion symptoms

  • They come up with questions to stimulate and steer the conversation

  • They help facilitate the conversation during the meetings and makes sure everyone has a chance to share
