HeadSpin: Young Adult Support Group

Join HeadSpin, our young adult support group that has been designed for high functioning individuals with acquired brain injury (ABI), or for individuals who present with similar challenges. The group is centred around community-based leisure activities and encourages social connections. The age of HeadSpin members range between 16 to late 30s. Driven by member interests, some programs have included activities such as a cooking class, billiards, paint night, volunteering, games night, etc. The members of our HeadSpin support group pay a fee for each activity depending on its cost. It is quite typical for this cost to range anywhere between $5 – $10.00 – $25.00.

Our facilitators have a wide variety of education, skills, work experience, and personality traits that blend well to connect with different members. We strive to make each member feel connected to the group and help them make new connections. 


“I think that Headspin has impacted me positively because it allows me to meet people who have gone through similar experiences and has helped me improve both my social and speech skills. I think that social connections are important to me because I am an extrovert and I feel energetic and happy when I interact with others. It helps make me forget about the pain and issues that I deal with on a daily basis. BIAPH meetings have made me laugh even when I’m not feeling 100% happy or I’m in pain.”

“It has been helpful to hear how other people are dealing with their brain injury. It helps to hear that other people also have challenges in living with a brain injury and it is helpful to hear how they try to manage it. I don’t feel alone.”
