WA State TBI Support Group


The session will be focusing on the topic of Acceptance and Relationships. The changes following a brain injury can place a strain on interpersonal relationships. Ultimately, it is important to find ways to navigate and help others accept the “new normal” after a brain injury. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore the importance of acceptance after a traumatic life change and provide opportunities for personal support and reflection.

Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Educational Support Groups 

The Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Advisory Council provides Support Groups through the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) that emphasize education and interpersonal support.

The TBI Support Groups are predicated on the concept that a person-centered approach can empower and enrich an individual’s life following a Traumatic Brain Injury.

The emphasis of DSHS TBI Funded Support groups is to aid in developing long-term knowledge and generic problem-solving skills to help attendees overcome obstacles that may interfere with a fulfilling life.

While these groups may provide a therapeutic effect, they do not provide therapy and instead focus on delivering organized bodies of knowledge and resources for the betterment of attendees.
