Suspected CTE Caregivers
We also have support groups on Facebook!
Join our PCS Resources Facebook group or our CTE Resources Facebook group to connect with members of the CLF community. The groups are private, and monitored by CLF to maintain a safe, respectful environment for all members.
These groups are a great forum for resources, support, coping strategies, and finding hope for those coping with or caring for someone with post-concussion symptoms or suspected CTE.
