Spinal Cord Injury Support Groups

Spinal cord injured people encounter other problems beyond the physical symptoms. Spinal cord injury affects social, emotional, vocational, and economic aspects of living. Coping with the stigma of being disabled, barriers to employment opportunities, expressing sexuality, and other social and personal issues are a major part of living with a spinal cord injury. Many individuals feel the need to discuss these topics with others that possess similar injuries.

As a service to persons with spinal cord injury or disease, the NSCIA Connecticut Chapter provides support group meetings. Our support groups allow individuals the opportunity to discuss a variety of topics with other's that have a spinal cord injury. Support group meetings are held at many area hospitals and independent living centers throughout the state of Connecticut. Support groups are organized and run by NSCIA CT Chapter member volunteers. Currently support groups are located at :
