One of the primary sources of support is the Temple Burn Center’s monthly support group. The group is moderated by a psychologist, and guest speakers are common. During the meetings, resources are shared on different topics pertaining to burn injury, wellness, self-care and skin care.
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. This variety offers participants different perspectives on the recovery journey.
