About the Head Trauma Support Project
The Head Trauma Support Project (HTSP) began 35 years ago as families of brain injury survivors united to support one another in making the journey from coma to community. At the time, no Sacramento-area resources existed to help survivors or their families adjust to life after brain injury.
Over the years, the project has expanded. It now includes survivors of brain injury, families and friends, caregivers and medical and rehabilitation professionals. HTSP brings people together with a common goal of promoting better understanding, treatment and quality of life for those with brain injury. Through support groups, survivors and family members continue to gain peer support while participating in social activities and listening to guest lecturers. HTSP empowers individuals to improve their potential and lead fuller lives. Our support groups are facilitated by professionals, and draw families and survivors from Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and El Dorado counties.
