The Military and TBI's

Just a short one today friends.  Since the other area of my life that is touched by TBI's would be our military members, I am posting some quick links for those wives that may need some help with information on injured husbands (or vise versa).

And if you would like to help spread the word and get this information out, the CDC is happy to have you copy it directly from their site, or use your own words.  Please, especially if you have a story to tell of a loved one or friend - help us get the word out.

Who Can I Contact for Support?
Several groups help people and their families deal with concussion and more serious brain injuries. They provide information and put people in touch with local resources, such as support groups, rehabilitation services, and a variety of health care professionals.

The Defense and Veterans Brain Injury Center (DVBIC) works to ensure that active duty military and veterans with brain injury receive the best evaluation, treatment, and follow-up. You can reach DVBIC by calling toll-free at 1-800-870-9244 or by visiting DVBIC’s website

Learn more information about TBI in the military, including an interactive website for service members, veterans, and families and caregivers.
