WA State Youth TBI Support Group (Invite Only)

Description

The following session will explore Youth Concussions, specifically their recognition and identification as they occur in everyday life (i.e., sporting activities, accidents, etc.). The group discussion will focus upon the aftereffects of sustaining a concussion as a youth, while addressing the emotional and mental repercussions, and how best to advocate for potential resources. Advocating for personal growth during the recovery phase will be explored, in addition to providing opportunities for personal support and 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.
