Reeve Foundation Virtual Support Groups
The Reeve Foundation’s Living with Paralysis and Caring for a Family Member Living with Paralysis support groups provide an opportunity for members to connect with others who understand what they are going through and to gain support, insight and guidance. Separate groups are held for individuals living with quadriplegia, those living with paraplegia, and family members/caregivers so that meetings can focus on the unique needs and challenges of each. Group meetings are led by two facilitators: a mental health professional and a peer with lived experience. Meetings are conducted in an open forum/conversational format and members are encouraged to raise topics and ask questions related to living with paralysis or caregiving that are of interest or concern to them.

Helene Runion – Making Connections: Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Virtual Support Groups Webinar
The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s support groups provide support and education for individuals living with paralysis and their family members/caregivers. These groups are led by a team of two facilitators: a mental health professional and a peer with lived experience. While the support groups can provide psychoeducational information and support, they do not provide any type of clinical or therapeutic services, interventions or treatments nor do they provide diagnosis of any type of mental or physical condition. Please consult with your physician or other appropriate medical or mental health professional before making any changes to your medical or mental health care or routines based on discussions held in the support groups. If you are having thoughts of harming yourself or others or thoughts of suicide, please call 911 or the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988.
