Touchstones is the longest-running support group in the Bay Area for people with brain injuries and their caregivers. At Touchstones, people with brain injuries and those who care about them support each other in discussions about recovery, jobs, volunteer work, housing and relationships both personal and within the community. A licensed, clinical psychologist facilitates the group.

Services For Brain Injury (SBI) is the only organization of its kind in the greater San Francisco Bay Area providing comprehensive rehabilitation all under one roof for people with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) or acquired brain injuries (ABI), including veterans.
