BIAAZ Funded Support Groups

The BIAAZ financially supports five support groups to assist in meeting the needs of families, survivors and caregivers. Locations include; Tempe, Glendale, Phoenix and Tucson. Each group is facilitated by a professional in the community who has dedicated their professional career choices specific to brain injury. Each group is unique and offers something different from one another. A support group is a great way to learn, share, express, and get involved with others who have been impacted by brain injury. So what are you waiting for?
