Education & Support Programs

When dealing with chronic neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s or Huntington’s diseases, it is helpful for patients and caregivers to reach out to a support group. These groups can provide access to practical information to patients and families and put you in contact with people who are having similar experiences as you. The physicians and staff at Indiana University Health Neuroscience are available for all of your needs during your diagnosis and treatment, but we also encourage you and your family to reach out to these groups for extra support.

Aneurysm Support Groups

Meeting: Every Tuesday from 11 am -12 pm  at Methodist Hospital in room A4230. 

IU Health and Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine also host a quarterly support group for those recovering from aneurysm.  This quarterly meeting offers a forum for patients and loved ones to share experiences and learn from others who understand the recovery process.  Please contact us for specific dates and times of the upcoming quarterly aneurysm support group.
