Find your care
Receiving a diagnosis of a cerebrovascular disorder can be overwhelming and frightening. But you don't have to navigate the complexities of your condition alone. At UCLA, we invite patients – and their family members – to take advantage of our support groups and other educational resources.
UCLA Neurosurgery Peer Support Program
- There are many people who have faced the same journey as you.
- UCLA Neurosurgery’s Peer Support Program is a free resource that connects you with a former UCLA Neurosurgery patient or family member of a former patient during your hospital stay.
- This is not medical advice.
- This is an opportunity to connect with an individual who can empathize with your feelings and concerns.
- Please email [email protected] or speak with a member of your care team if you are interested in participating in this program while you are in the hospital.
Los Angeles Brain Aneurysm Foundation Support Group
The Los Angeles Brain Aneurysm Support Group meets quarterly at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center. The Support Group is for patients diagnosed with an unruptured brain aneurysm, those having survived a ruptured aneurysm and all caregivers who have supported these patients. The meetings provide information and education on a variety of topics relating to the diagnosis, investigation, treatment options and recovery process for both the survivor and the caregiver. It is also an opportunity to receive support and reassurance from others going through a similar situation. The meetings are held once per quarter, from 6 to 7 pm.
