Consumer Guide Overview
Thank you for using the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance Consumer Guide to Brain Injury Resources. This guide is partially funded by the Minnesota Department of Health and is designed to help you throughout the rehabilitation process. In this guide, you will find listings of resources and tips to help you choose support services that will meet your needs.
The brain is one of the most complex and least understood organs in the body. Each brain injury is unique. An estimated 5.3 million Americans, more than two percent of the U.S. population, currently live with a disability as a result of brain injury, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This translates to 100,000 Minnesotans living with a disability due to brain injury.
After a brain injury, there often are difficult decisions to make. The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance is happy to provide individuals with brain injury as well as family, friends, co-workers and medical professionals with information and resources that can help make the most out of life after brain injury. The Alliance is also able to support and problem-solve with professionals who serve individuals with brain injury.
For more information, call the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance at 800-669-6442 or 612-378-2742 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. At other times, check your local phone directory for the county crisis hotline in your area.
