Support Groups

Support Group Meetings Aid in Recovery

Methodist Rehabilitation Center encourages patients and their families to participate in support groups that focus on their illness or injury. Support from others in similar situations greatly benefits patients recovering from neurological or orthopedic diseases or disorders. These groups frequently meet at our main campus in Jackson or at our East Campus in Flowood.

City-Wide Stroke Support Group

A stroke support group meets the first Friday of every month at 2 p.m. in the BankPlus conference room at Methodist Rehabilitation Center, 1350 E. Woodrow Wilson Ave., Jackson. This support group is open to all stroke survivors and their families. This group is a collaborative effort between the Methodist Rehabilitation Center, St. Dominic's, Baptist Health Systems, and the UMMC Stroke Center.

West Nile Virus Support Group

Due to current COVID-19 concerns, these meetings are on hiatus. The group is looking at virtual meetings as an option.

The support group is open to WNV survivors, their families and caregivers. For more information, call Sharon Sims at 601-672-6687.
