Information & Resources

support"I used to run my own business, but since my brain injury I cannot keep up with the responsibilities... My son was involved in a car accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury, and now he seems to be isolating himself and seems depressed."

Each brain injury comes with a unique set of challenges for the survivors, family members and caregivers. Where do you go for help with these and the thousands of other questions that a brain injury can bring?

The Information and Resources (I&R) Department was created to provide support, information, resources and informal counseling to survivors, family members and caregivers. I&R staff members can provide a list of professional services, general information regarding the effects of brain injury and guide you towards resources to aid in recovery.

Because each situation is different, the I&R coordinator that answers your call will ask a few questions in order to ascertain what suggestions will be most appropriate for your individual circumstance. Please be assured that any information will be held in confidance.

BIA-MA's information and Resource coordinators can provide resources in a variety of areas, including:

-Adult Day Health Centers -Attorneys -Case Managers
-Coping Strategies and Support -Education -Housing
-Neuropsychologists -Occupational Therapists -Psychiatrists
-Rehabilitation (Inpatient & Outpatient) -Speech Language Therapists -Support Groups
