Support Groups

We've created a support network for facilitators in Washington State. In collaboration with partners across the state we provide training, technical assistance, and information for TBI Support Group facilitators. Our trainings now include facilitators and leaders from across the United States.

Population(s) Served

Project PEER is a unique program focusing on Personal Empowerment through Education and Resources. We work with individuals affected by brain injury and their families & caregivers to learn, practice and improve social, business, and daily living skills. More importantly, this program is designed to help participants realize their own potential to embrace leadership and the entrepreneur spirit, and create jobs that are lead by peers.

Population(s) Served

The BEST community outreach program enables volunteers and enthusiasts to become more involved in their community by providing support and resources for brain injury awareness and education. Our outreach also focuses on increasing legislative, media, and public attention to the importance of recognizing and addressing the needs of individuals with brain injury and their loved ones. BEST's ongoing engagement with individuals and community organizations through support groups, peer mentoring, and community outreach activities helps us to identify needs and community trends in order to  stimulate dialogue that address solutions.
