Support Groups provide a safe place for everyone to share their experiences, learn new skills, and find resources that can help. The map shown below is a visual breakdown of which counties are in each of the regions. The calendar (below the map) is sectioned into the four regions in Washington State so that you can find a support group meeting near you.
Why a calendar and not a list of groups? Many in our community have shared that they think about going to a group “today” along with letting us know that a list is overwhelming. Please contact us if you have questions or need assistance.
Central WA Region – Counties include Benton, Chelan, Douglas, Grant, Kittatas, Klickitat, Okanogan, and Yakima.
Eastern WA Region – Counties include Adams, Asotin, Columbia, Franklin, Ferry, Garfield, Lincoln, Pend Orelle, Spokane, Stevens, Walla Walla, and Whitman.

Support groups are a great resource for people to find help to maintain control over their lives, to give and take the wisdom and experience that comes from living with a brain injury. Our group focuses on providing peer support to those that need help moving on from their brain injury through friendship and mentorship. We also offer a program through the Brain Energy Support Team called Identity & Moving On After Brain Injury. This is an evidence-based curriculum that focuses on helping individuals move forward in their lives after brain injury.
