Being part of a group of people you relate to may help you through different stages of recovery. Temple Burn Center offers a free Burn Survivor Support Group that meets the second Wednesday of every month.
The support group is attended by burn survivors at all stages of recovery — from current patients who are still in the burn unit to those undergoing outpatient rehabilitation or who have fully recovered.
Burn Survivor Resources
The group is moderated by a psychologist and guest speakers are common. During the meetings, we will share resources on different topics pertaining to burn injury, wellness, self-care and skin care.
Support group members also gather to celebrate holidays together and offer each other support through the “Philadelphia Burn Support Group” on Facebook.
