Brain Injury Support Group for Survivors, Family & Caregivers

Brain injuries can range from mild to fatal. There are multiple causes of brain injuries; including damaged caused by after birth, genetic or congenital disorders to concussions, tumors or even gunshot wounds. Everyone is susceptible to a brain injury and they affect all age groups from infants to the elderly. Recovery from a brain injury varies from person to person and cause to cause. Often people need help adjusting to changes in their lives following a brain injury.

This support group in collaboration with the Brain Injury Association of Michigan is designed to provide survivors, families, friends, and caregivers the opportunity to share information, experiences, and advice while gaining valuable knowledge about brain injuries. The group will meet on the second Monday of each month from 6 to 8 p.m. at MidMichigan Medical Center – Alpena, Auditorium 2.

There is no registration required. Those interested in learning more about brain injuries and resources available may visit Those who have questions about this support group may call Nancy Kotwicki, L.M.S.W., at (989) 356-7359 or Sandy Smith, R.N., at (231) 499-2117.
