We are a national nonprofit organization that provides education, community support, and collaborates with academia and policymakers. What has guided and distinguished us from the start is our lived experience and belief that people will be the drivers of change.

tbi Klatch

The TBI Klatch, originally called the TBI Kaffee Klatch, was born during the COVID-19 pandemic so Kitsap Brain Injury support group members had a way to stay connected. It has become a weekly Zoom event for a growing virtual-family featuring casual, informal discussions about defining and surviving in a "new normal." Klatch is about compassion, acceptance, understanding, awareness, knowledge and rebuilding after brain injury.

WA TBI Advisory Council Virtual Support Groups

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.

Project Access Northwest

Project Access Northwest - Pro Bono Counseling

At the Pro Bono Counseling Program with Project Access NW, we believe that access to quality mental health care is a human right and can change a person’s life. Our mission is to extend a helping hand to those without insurance or with inadequate coverage within our community, connecting them to the appropriate mental health or emerging health professionals tailored to their unique circumstances. In our efforts to make a significant impact, we collaborate with a dedicated network of licensed professionals, student interns, and pre-licensure individuals requiring supervised hours, all of whom generously offer their expertise without charge, affirming our commitment to equal access to quality mental health care.

Although our current roster of compassionate volunteers does not include specialists in brain injury therapy, at this moment; we are optimistic and actively working to diversify our network of providers to encompass this and other specialized areas of mental health care. We are constantly evolving to better serve the needs of our community.
