Brain Injury Support Groups exist to allow people with brain injury and their family members to meet others who are in similar situations, gain valuable emotional support from one another, form friendships, obtain information and resources, and hear speakers discuss a variety of brain injury topics.
Support Groups are opportunities for both people with brain injury and their family members to discuss the difficulties and hardships they are facing, as well as the accomplishments and joys in their life.
We are extremely fortunate in Washington State to have some of the finest Support Groups in the Nation. Facilitators for Brain Injury Support Groups are offered training both online and in-person. Check out more about the BISGN to learn how to lead a group.
It is a place where members can:
- Find out more about life with a Brain Injury
- Share their own experiences during both difficult and successful times
- Learn from other members’ achievements and strategies
- Find out about the newest trends and information related to Brain Injury
- Feel supported by having peers around you who have gone through similar situations
- Be safe, knowing that everyone in the group supports each other and that what is shared remains in the group
- Develop relationships with other people who have had similar experiences
- Socialize and develop friendships
- Get involved with the community
