Hi there. I am looking for one or two support groups for people who
have had a brain trauma and/or brain injury.

              -- An in person meeting/group around LA -- 
Prefered whould be within 45 miles of the 91001 zip code, but anyhwere
within the greater LA area will do (up to 100 miles from the city
center that is). Please, no links to online support groups.

*Don't feel like to have to find all of the groups around, just one or
two will do. All that you need to provide me with is a phone number
(to call for more information) and the city in which it is located.
That's all I'm looking for. Thanks!

Please feel free to email with any questions/clarifications.

three support groups on the Parents Helping Parents website. There is
