The purpose of this research study is to examine the effectiveness of an online Spanish cognitive intervention program in Latino/Hispanic Spanish-speaking subarachnoid hemorrhage patients. In particular, the researchers will examine whether cognitive impairments associated with a subarachnoid hemorrhagic event improve after completing the online cognitive intervention program. Secondary outcomes of the research study include examining whether there is an improvement in research participants' quality of life and psychological functioning as a result of the online Spanish cognitive intervention program.
