Support for you
When you are told you have a meningioma, you may feel many different emotions, including fear, anger and possibly confusion. At this stage, it is important to know what support is available to you. You may not feel like you need it straight away, or you may want to access it all – it is entirely up to you. The key thing to know is how we can help.
At brainstrust, we have a team of trained coaches. We listen, listen some more and then ask questions. Coaching can help you focus on achieving specific immediate goals that relate to specific areas – for example, weighing up the pros and cons of having a particular treatment or coming to terms with your diagnosis. Coaching is also about developing strategies and clarity to achieve a better quality of life.
If you would like to know more about coaching, or if you want to arrange a conversation with one of our coaches, get in touch with us at email@example.com or call our helpline on 01983 292 405.
Thrive with brainstrust webinars
‘Thrive with brainstrust’ webinars and workshops are meticulously curated by brainstrust and hosted by leading experts to help you tackle the challenges that make life with a brain tumour so hard.
So that you can be more informed, more engaged and cope better, you can access brainstrust workshops online.
If you are feeling lost or confused, need practical information or would like a deeper dive into specific aspects of life with a brain tumour, then our Thrive workshops are for you.
It can often be a great source of support and comfort to connect with others who understand and are going through a similar experience.
Join our monthly virtual Meetup ‘Meningiomas Matter’, and chat with other people living with a meningioma diagnosis. There is no agenda – it is just an opportunity to get together with other people who understand.
At times of distress and fear, it can be difficult to know where to turn and who to talk to.
The brainstrust helpline offers people with a brain tumour and their caregivers support, information and pragmatic advice over the phone and by email.
Call 01983 292 405 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for 24/7 support.
Support for caregivers
Caregivers play a key role in seeking support and information related to a brain tumour diagnosis, and they need support themselves. Our website has dedicated information to help caregivers as they prepare to take on a new role.
There is also the opportunity to join other caregivers at our monthly virtual Meetup.
