I have a TBI

No two TBI events are the same. Every TBI experience is as unique as the person who is affected, symptoms can change day-to-day, and symptoms can vary from person-to-person. 

Whether the TBI is recent or during recovery:

  • Resources for healthcare support that puts your needs at the center of the plan 
  • Get support to healthcare, information, belonging, and hope and healing 
  • State and community health leaders who prioritize equality in healthcare.

DSHS is partnering with the Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council to build strategic partnerships with state, local, and community partners. 

If you’re just starting your traumatic brain injury journey let’s start by answering the basics. 

The first step to recovery is getting SUPPORT and getting CONNECTED to the best local resources for your needs. With dozens of agencies and organizations – where do you start?
