About this meeting
The following session will be focused on the stresses of managing daily life as a caregiver and an individual living with a brain injury. Individuals without a flexible mindset are often resistant to change, believing it to be a strength. Digging deeper, they find that perfectionism contributes to several problems, including stress, anxiety, and depression. For those that are caregivers or individuals living with a brain injury, such a mindset can be debilitating. Through discussion and practice, the group will explore strategies to manage daily stress and the pitfalls of being a perfectionist as a family caregiver. Opportunities for discussion, personal support, and reflection will be provided.

About the host
Hello! My name is Nick, and I am a mental health professional out of Washington State, working as a licensed mental health counselor. For several years now, I have been facilitating TBI Support Groups on Hey Peers, and would like to expand myself to being certified on here too.
Motivation for help
My motivation to help is centered around my empathy for those that have struggled with finding themselves following a major life change. I have experienced it myself and it is something that can really benefit from simple social support.

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.

*Closed captioning is offered at indicated sessions.
