TBI Washington State Advisory Council

The Washington Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Strategic Partnership Advisory Council was created to bring together expertise from the public and private sector to address needs and gaps in services and information sharing.  Members are from public and private, individuals with TBI, medical professionals, human service providers, caregivers, and state agencies.

RCW - Chapter 74.31


TBI Council Comprehensive Plan

DSHS and the TBI Council recognize that a multi-year strategy is necessary to achieve the long-term vision for improving the experience for persons living with a TBI and aid in the informing of the public about TBI. The Comprehensive Plan has short-term goals that will build the long-term vision for a system characterized by:

  • Public and private efforts in public awareness and prevention for all age groups; 
  • Cultural competence in TBI services and programs, outreach to underserved populations;  
  • Supports for children and youth, including a Concussion / TBI Return to Learn program;
  • Employer and employee education programs through Return to Work; 
  • Coordination of services across public and private human service systems; 
  • Independent living information, and transitional supportive program sharing. 

RCW 74.31 also created the TBI account in the state treasury.  Revenue is generated through a five-dollar fee collected from traffic moving violations and is administered by DSHS.
