Welcome to a place where people will understand you!
A place to find other people who share your own experiences, pain and struggles, joys and hopes while healing from a female brain injury. Our volunteers and group members are not doctors, and thus should not advise each other on medical treatments or try to diagnose any injury.
We have five Facebook Groups which are moderated by PINK Concussions' Volunteers. The purpose of the groups is to have a place for members to share their own experience with brain injury and see that they are not alone.
Click PINK title of each group to reach that group on Facebook.
WOMENS' GROUP This group is for woman over age 25 who are suffering a brain injury (aka mTBI, TBI, or concussion) and/or Post Concussion Syndrome which is now recognized as symptoms lasting over a month. Topics will address women's issues with TBI including employment, spouses, and/or being a parent. We also have a group for women under age 25 where school and college age issues will be addressed. Pick the group best for you.

PINK MILITARY GROUP for women who are active military or veterans
PINK MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS This group is for professionals interested in Female Brain Injury and interested in having a forum to ask questions and share research. There are a number of female medical professionals/first responders in the group who also have brain injurie. The definition of professionals is broad to include medical professionals, athletic trainers, researchers, graduate students, first responders, etc.
We are building a supportive online community and working towards presenting educational webinars; and hopefully this year, hosting retreats so we can meet in person.
NOTE TO NEWLY DIAGNOSED WOMEN : If you are within a month of your injury, you may want to wait to join if you need our support in a few weeks. A majority women do heal within a month and do not develop PCS. This group's mission is to support women with longer recoveries and not meant to add any worry or stress to newly diagnosed women who may heal within a shorter time period (around a month). Come back if you need us and we will be here for you.
