A traumatic brain injury is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability.

To bring together individuals and families affected by this injury, HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital has been hosting a free monthly support group for community members and their families affected by traumatic brain injuries.

The group meets from 6:30 to 8 p.m. the first Thursday of every month in the Lobby Conference Room (formerly called “MECR-1”) at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital, 900 West Clairemont Ave.

The next meetings are scheduled for November 7, December 5 and January 2.

Registration is not needed and new members are always welcome. For more information, contact Jamie Wright at (715) 717-4505.
