For those of you who are new to the Brain Energy Support Team (BEST), welcome! We are so glad you are here!
The Brain Energy Support Team is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded in 2008. BEST provides PEER support, advocacy, and education. BEST distinguishes itself from other brain injury organizations in that the leadership, services, and programs are built by and for individuals with brain injury and their families.
Here are some of the key things we offer:
- Support Groups – is a two-fold program focusing on (1) providing a comprehensive infrastructure network that offers training, technical assistance, and resources for support group facilitators, and (2) resources and support for the development and sustainability of support groups and their participants.
- Project PEER – offers “Personal Empowerment through Education and Resources” as a holistic approach to empowering individuals with brain injury through specialized futures planning, skills training, and peer mentoring to achieve personal success.
- Education & Outreach – provides resources, presentations, workshops, and trainings built on best practices and developed by professionals with brain injuries for individuals with a brain injury and their families, caregivers, professionals, paraprofessionals, legislators, and the general public
