About this meeting
The landscape of concussion awareness has changed dramatically in the last couple of decades, yet discussions surrounding the sustainment of a concussion remain somewhat generalized. The primary focus of this group session will be to discuss “how” people talk about concussions amongst peers, family, and the community at large, in addition to, how to improve those interactions. Opportunities for personal reflection and disclosure amongst group members will be provided throughout the session.

About the host
I serve as a facilitator for the Washington State TBI Support Group Program. In this role, I strive to provide a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for individuals to seek the support they need. My goal as a facilitator is always to put the needs of the group members first, above all else.

being able to join TBI support groups from the comfort of my home adds an additional level of feeling safe to share how I feel. Nick does a wonderful job allowing the support group to flow naturally. Thank you virtual support groups.

Nick seems professional, competent, etc. I’m not sure whether he wants me in the group. Still, as he explained, we may not see eye-to-eye but I think it’s helpful.

Very professional leader Nick. I participated, but a fear that he didn't know what hit him. I tend to make people stray a bit.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Support Groups

Washington State


Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Strategic Partnership Advisory Council of Washington State 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.


The group rotation will consist of scheduled groups of one to two per week. Each group focuses on a specific topic geared towards individuals who have sustained a brain injury, their families, and providers.
*Please note, groups with "Private" in the title are for specific groups and are not open for public entry.
