About the Hosts
The Brain Injury Association of Washington’s mission is to increase public awareness, support, and hope for those affected by brain injury through education, assistance, and advocacy. Our vision is a world where brain injury is prevented, and every person already affected by its impact benefits from resources that maximize their quality of life.
Since 2006, HeadStrong has been dedicated to supporting young people with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) and their families. We began as a support group for families whose children had been injured by TBI. We continue to grow each year to meet the need for support, education, and advocacy.
Our vision is to see that young people recovering from TBI have access to support for the best recovery possible, secure a meaningful place in their communities, and live with dignity and respect.
Seattle BrainWorks is a community-based day program that provides short- and long-term support to people who have experienced brain injury. The program is centered around the “clubhouse model,” in which brain injury survivors carry out the work of running the clubhouse. In the course of completing the tasks involved in clubhouse operation, our members practice living, work and socialization skills.
Seattle BrainWorks’ mission is to empower individuals with brain injury to relearn skills and create strategies that will help them reintegrate as happy and successful members of the
The Numbers Tell the Story
In Washington State, brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability among children and young adults. An estimated 1.7 million traumatic brain injury deaths, emergency department visits and hospitalizations occur annually in the U.S. Studies show that 70-90% of inmates received a TBI Before they were incarcerated. The personal impact of brain injury can be devastating. It can result in despair for individuals, upheaval in families and a need for long-term or even life-long assistance.
