Few people understand the personal impact brain injury can have. Its effects often are subtle and difficult to express. In March of 2016, the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance began the Unmasking Brain Injury in Minnesota project - a statewide community-based art project that enlisted the participation of over a thousand individuals living with the effects of brain injury. Unmasking allowed individuals affected by brain injury to design masks that communicate their unique perspectives and altered outlooks. It gave survivors and caregivers a voice to illuminate their life with a brain injury; to show others that persons living with a disability due to brain injury are deserving of respect, compassion and the same opportunities afforded all citizens in their respective communities.

Brain Injury in the Homeless Community: Where Do We Go from Here
The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance invited representatives from a wide range of service providers serving the homeless as well as homeless individuals with brain injuries to participate in a half-day discussion intended to identify specific ways the Alliance could build stronger connections to the homeless community. The discussion, facilitated by a senior Wilder Research consultant, covered a wide range of topics including experiences in recognizing and responding to brain injury, stigma and misunderstandings associated with this type of injury, supports and services available now, and ideas about what supports might best serve this population in the future. The information from this dialogue will be used by the Alliance to plan for outreach and intervention efforts that can best meet the diverse range of needs among those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.
