Online support groups

Our online communities are a great way for people affected by neurological problems to interact, share their experiences and provide mutual support

Introducing the HealthUnlocked Network



We launched this new online community to replace the forum on our old website. The Brain & Spine Foundation HealthUnlocked group is an open space for anyone affected by any neurological problem, common or rare, and their friends and family. We encourage people to share their experiences in this anonymous and safe environment.

Connect with people on Facebook

The Brain & Spine Foundation has set up Facebook groups for people affected by Chiari malformations and subarachnoid haemorrhage.

The group has been indeed helpful to me. In fact, it has been the most help I have received since I had my subarachnoid haemorrhage in 2011.

These groups are a great way for people to interact, share their stories and provide mutual support. They are also a useful tool for people wanting to alleviate the stress and anxiety associated with neurological health problems. Talking to those with similar experiences can help people better understand their condition and can let individuals know that they are not alone.
