HeadSpin: Youth & Young Adult Support Group

This group has been designed for high functioning youth and young adults with an 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 18 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 HeadSpin 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.

What People Say About Us

The respite caregiver knows his abilities and weaknesses. He is prone to be very, very quiet and she draws him out and makes him speak. She is a gentle and kind person who brings him some socializing that he otherwise would not have. The program has exceeded our expectations. The respite caregiver is a gem and we have come to love her!

I have really enjoyed people sharing their stories and hearing the speakers present. There have been some very informative speakers. Just listening to others helps me not feel alone and connected to others, you feel like somebody else understands what you're going through. For those thinking about attending a group I would say come with an open mind and expect to receive something good. It doesn't matter where the group is, there's always something good.
Adult Support Group, Member
Having a local support group (BIAPH), helped me a lot during my recovery. It has been great to meet other survivors that can relate to you and understand you and your situation. I made a whole new group of friends. I had wonderful experiences finally connecting with other survivors. The local support groups helped me share some of my challenges and learn from others.
Youth and Young Adult Support Group, Member
By having my husband be able to take back his previous responsibility of the weekly grocery shopping (with the assistance of a respite caregiver), he has become more self-confident in himself and it makes him feel good that he is able to help out with the weekly household chores.

Just a quick note to say thank you for the work you do. I really value the time you've taken each time to find me the right mentor. I am once again absolutely loving my calls with my current mentor and they are a highlight of my week where I know I can speak with someone who understands what I'm coping with. These are wonderful people who are mentors and I truly value their volunteered time to help people like me as we join the same path. I look forward to giving back as a mentor myself at some point.
