Additional resources to help with recovery after injury

The Trauma Survivors Network (TSN)

We are a community of patients and survivors looking to connect with one another and rebuild their lives after a serious injury. The underlying goal of our resources and programs is to ensure the victims of trauma a stable recovery and to connect those who share similar stories.

Virtual Support Group

The Trauma Survivors Network (TSN) offers monthly virtual support groups to individuals who have experienced a physical injury. Each month, a new topic is discussed, and you will have the opportunity to meet with others who may have similar experiences to you. You will learn about emotional recovery and strategies to improve wellness and mental health. 

Virtual Support groups are free and confidential 90-minute online group sessions.

Groups are co-led by TSN Trauma Professionals and TSN Peers.
