Joining a stroke support group can help you stay connected to others that can relate to the complex road to recovery.
A support group can help curb post-stroke depression and provide useful insight into the recovery tips that others have learned.
To find a great support group, you might not have to look any further than your computer.

During stroke recovery, support is everything — especially if you can get support from others who are in the same situation as you.
Face-to-face support groups exist but they are scarce. The chances of finding one in your area might be low, but luckily Facebook has made it easy to stay connected.
Our online stroke support group is a great place to vent, feel heard, and ask for advice. While your therapist is still the best person to ask for medical advice, this group knows all the best tips and tricks for stroke recovery.
