Welcome to the Brain Injury Connections Northwest (BIC-NW) site! BIC-NW is an umbrella organization that supports several programs and services that serve the brain injury community in the Portland metropolitan area in the Pacific Northwest.

Our vision is to improve the quality of life of those affected by brain injury.

Our mission is to connect those touched by brain injury to the people, resources, and services that best serve their needs.

We are happy that you found your way to our site, and hope that we can connect with you on a regular basis! Check out local support groups under the Resources tab, in the Support section. Please feel free to send questions or comments about BIC-NW or brain injury to info@bic-nw.org.

To subscribe to email announcements, send a request to info@bic-nw.org.

Brain Injury Connections Northwest is guided by compassion, hope, inclusion and collaboration.

Note: BIC-NW was formally known as Brain-injury Information, Referral and Resource Development, or BIRRDsong. While the original BIRRDsong support group continues to meet on the 1st Saturday of the month, the organization has expanded its services to support various local brain injury support activities in addition to the BIRRDsong Peer support group, among others.
