BIAV Supporting You

Virginia Support Groups

Anyone who has experienced a brain injury, either their own or that of a friend or loved one, understands the worry, confusion, and stress it creates. Support groups provide a chance to learn from others who have been living with brain injury, share your own experiences, and give and get encouragement from those who really understand.

Now you can search our database of local support groups online right here on our site. Just type in the name of the group (if you know it) or you can select the area of the state you live in. Then click the "Search" button below for a list of support groups in your area.

If you do not see a group you are looking for, try typing the name of the area in the "Name of Group" box (e.g., Winchester, Charlottesville, Abingdon) and then click the "Search" button. You can also select "All" under "Area Served" and then click on the "Search" button. This will give you an alphabetical listing of all support groups throughout the state.

This list is provided for informational purposes. Only the groups marked with an * are affiliated with BIAV. Other groups have been established and are run by persons with brain injury, family, professionals and staff from other organizations serving people with brain injury and do not necessarily reflect the views or official position of BIAV.

All attempts are made to ensure the accuracy of information, however contact persons should be called prior to attending a meeting to make sure there have not been any changes.

Can’t find a group in your area? If you are person with a brain injury, a family member or a professional who works with people with brain injury, and you’d like to see a group get started in your area, please let BIAV know. Many of the support groups listed here are facilitated by volunteers. When BIAV does not have staff in the vicinity, we will provide you with tools and support to get a group started in your area. Consider this wonderful volunteer opportunity if you see the value of peer support, have the drive to get something new started in your area and want to make a difference in the life of others whose life has taken this unexpected detour. For assistance and more information, contact Christine Baggini, Senior Resource Coordinator, at 804-355-5748 or 800-444-6442 or
