NDBIN Support Groups
Move Online Due to COVID-19
NDBIN saw a need for support groups to continue throughout the pandemic crisis affecting our nation and got feedback from survivors, providers, and family members. Meetings will be held once a month, on the last Monday at 2:00 pm Central. The topic of attendee's choice is chosen the month prior. A brief presentation and sharing of items is done by NDBIN and then support group members are able to share their experiences after. We try to keep these groups around an hour. Please join us – all are welcome!
Students offer Literacy and Conversation Groups to Survivors
This group offers participants a place to share thoughts, ideas, and engage in conversations on a variety of topics. University of North Dakota graduate students are on hand to help facilitate communication skills whether that be through prompting, visual aids, and/or augmentative and alternative communication.
What is Powerful Tools for Caregivers?
Caregiving brings with it a unique set of triumphs and challenges, and at times a caregiver can feel isolated. The Powerful Tools for Caregivers is a curriculum developed out of Portland, Oregon, and involves a six-week class series where caregivers come together to help navigate the challenging world of caregiving.
