Support Forums and Collaborators

It may be important to just reach out and connect with others dealing with similar issues. This site is for addiction issues but is worthwhile for connecting on any issue. This great resource does online connections 5 X a day every day. https://www.weconnectrecovery.com/free-online-support-meetings

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

Created by FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer and former NFL player and Army Green Beret Nate Boyer, the group brings together veterans and athletes to offer each other support. https://www.vetsandplayers.org/program

This great Facebook page runs a support group every Tuesday at 7 pm.
