Support groups for CTE are slowly emerging. If you are aware of one please let us know so we can post here.

This great Facebook page runs a support group every Tuesday at 7 pm.
Closed Facebook groups are for people who can discuss their sports related brain injury confidentially with others that have the same injury…
