Connect on Facebook

Facebook support groups can be a powerful way to feel both a sense of community and of being understood, from the comfort of your own home.

Our Synapse Reconnections Facebook group is moderated by Synapse staff with either lived experience or a wealth of knowledge about brain injury. There are regular Facebook live interviews on a range of topics relating to life with a brain injury, as well as online meetings. To protect your privacy, this is a closed Facebook group – which means that only members of the group can see what you have posted.

Get 1-to-1 Peer Support

If you don’t feel confident attending a group or are looking for more personal guidance and support from someone you can relate with directly, our peer program may be suitable for you.

Our team will work to establish a connection with someone of a suitable age and gender who shares similar personal interests and experiences of brain injury. Your peer will offer understanding and can provide advice and guidance about navigating daily life and the services available to you. You can communicate with your peer in any number of ways (email, phone, in-person) on a regular basis agreed upon by both parties.

Local Reconnections Groups

Our local Reconnections group meetings are for people with brain injury and their support network to connect with other individuals living with brain injury.

They are an opportunity for you to share some of your challenges, your victories, your tips and tricks. Come and learn from other people’s stories and hear about different experiences of brain injury and issues that are important to you. You will be in a supportive space with people who understand. We look forward to seeing you.

Please Note:

Due to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Reconnections group meetings will take place online until further notice.
