Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Advisory Council
The passage of the Traumatic Brain Injury Strategic Partnership Act of 2007 (RCW 74.31), also known as the Tommy Manning Act, marked the first time that our state specifically addressed issues related to persons with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The Act requires:
- an examination of the support and service needs of people with traumatic brain injuries and their caregivers and
- the development of a comprehensive plan to address those needs.
As a council member, Disability Rights Washington attends Washington Traumatic Brain Injury Partnership Advisory Council meetings, collaborates with council members on TBI issues and strategy, and conducts outreach at meetings and the annual state TBI conference.
