Support Groups

Your Houston Methodist team understands the challenges and emotions that come with managing neurological conditions. Join fellow patients, loved ones and caregivers at regular support group meetings to make new friends and build a supportive network. 
Neurology support groups provide vital information and lay the groundwork for trusted relationships with people who understand what you’re going through. Houston Methodist hosts regular meetings for patients, families and caregivers to learn, share experiences and give each other hope.
