University of Illinois Health Hospital Support Group

The mission of this UIC group is to provide information, education, encouragement and understanding to survivors and caregivers during the ongoing recovery process and is also aimed at supporting those who lost loved ones to a brain aneurysm.

The support group meetings provide an opportunity for reassurance and personal exchange but also information and education on a variety of topics of interest and many suggested by the attendees. In addition, there are two social events per year: a fall fundraising event and a summer get together for members, family, and friends. Brain aneurysm patients and their family and friends 18 and older are invited to participate in monthly meetings. Please be aware that these meetings are not to provide medical advice but to provide peer support. The group meets monthly on the last Tuesday of the month from 5:00 – 6:00 PM but can change due to weather and/or scheduling conflicts.
