COVID-19 Update

For the time being, COVID-19 is affecting TBI services.

TBI staff will remain available to you. You can email or call us. Please reach out if you have questions or needs.

Funds For You (FFY). TBI Clients are still able to work with their TBI Social Worker to submit and apply for FFY, we are just limiting home visits, and travel for our staff, so all FFY applications will need to be submitted via e-mail, mail, or planned ahead with your TBI Social Worker.

We want to make sure everyone is safe and healthy.

Training & Presentations: TBI has canceled all in-person trainings and presentations. TBI can offer trainings from a distance using Zoom. Zoom is a remote video platform. If you would like to schedule a training, please contact us. Also, keep checking back as we schedule online training opportunities.

Remember: The TBI staff are still here to support you in navigating life after a TBI. Please call or e-mail us, and we will be happy to be creative in ways to best support your needs.

Advisory Committee

The West Virginia TBI Advisory Committee is an organization that is established by the WVU CED and partner agencies under the federal Traumatic Brain Injury Act (P.L. 104-166). The purpose of the Board is to provide guidance and feedback to state, local, and private partners on design, development, and implementation of statewide services and supports for people with TBI. To this end, the Board’s charge is to help develop and strengthen West Virginia’s ability to appropriately serve those with TBI by:

  • Analyzing the needs of people with TBI, their families, and caregivers and proposing strategies to meet those needs;
  • Reviewing best practices and making subsequent recommendations to partners;
  • Participating in the development of a statewide plan for TBI;
  • Involving people with TBI and their families in the development of policies and programs.
