Mental Health in Pompano Beach

The First Baptist Church of Pompano Beach is helping those suffering from “hurts, habits, and hang-ups” (painful emotions, addictions and dependencies, and negative mental or emotional attitudes) overcome their difficulties and celebrate their future with regular weekly Celebrate Recovery meetings. Celebrate Recovery is a faith-based program which helps participants develop new strategies for coping with a life free of mental, emotional, chemical, and psychological burdens.2 Support group programs like Celebrate Recovery can be a lifeline for those attempting to transform their lives.

Traumatic brain injuries affect the body and mind in various, unpredictable ways and it can be difficult for both survivors and their families and loved ones to adjust to the many physical and psychological such injuries bring.3 Brain injury support groups help survivors and their loved ones and caregivers to navigate these transitions together, sharing resources, information, victories, and sorrows with those who understand them best. The Brian Injury Association of Florida provides educational materials, resources, and other forms of assistance to the brain injury support group in Pompano Beach. For meeting times and further details about the group, call (954) 776-5010.4
