WA State Youth TBI Support Group

Description

The following session will on the topic of return to play following a concussion. For many young individuals that engage in sports, sustaining a concussion can be a relatively common occurrence. However, engaging in proper medical and self-care can be an important factor when ensuring symptoms of a concussion do not persist. Through discussion and practice, the group will discuss strategies for returning to play and offering opportunities for emotional support and personal reflection.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support

Washington State Support Groups

 

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

 

The Washington State Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Strategic Partnership Advisory Council provides Support Groups through the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) that emphasize connection, education, and engagement in life after sustaining a TBI.

 

Our Support Groups are predicated on the concept of a person-centered approach that can aid in the development of long-term knowledge and generic problem-solving skills to help attendees overcome barriers to sustaining a fulfilling life.

 

These Support Groups may provide a therapeutic effect, but they do not provide therapy and instead focus on delivering organized bodies of knowledge and resources for the betterment of attendees.

 

*Please note, groups with "private" in the title are specifically for groups hosted in facilities and are not open for public entry.
