Trauma Survivors Network
UofL Hospital has partnered with the Trauma Survivors Network (TSN) to further expand support to our trauma patients. The TSN is a community of patients and families like you who are looking to connect with one another and rebuild their lives after a traumatic injury. Joining this community can help build support and provide resources.
Trauma support group
The trauma support group is hosted by your trauma program social workers. The support group is held on the second Wednesday of every month from 6 p.m. Eastern to 7 p.m. The trauma support group is a safe place for trauma survivors (and their loved ones) to come and connect no matter where a person is in their recovery process. If you have further questions, please email Jennifer.Youngberg@UofLHealth.org. We hope you can join our awesome trauma support community!
UofL Hospital’s trauma support program offers trauma patients an opportunity to talk with a trained peer visitor who can support a newly injured person through a difficult time. Peer visitation aims to reduce isolation and promote the feeling of a sense of belonging and being understood. All our peer visitors have once walked in your shoes from the initial accident, hospitalization, physical rehabilitation and returning home to find a sense of normalcy. Peer support visitors understand the concerns of a trauma patient on a very personal level. It is our goal that through peer visitation you will find a community of individuals with whom you can connect.
