Services

For veterans with traumatic brain injury(TBI): This site is provided as an informational resource on TBI. This includes community resources, links to medical information about TBI, and as an opportunity to see what other veterans with TBI are saying about resources and getting the services they need.

There are links to networking opportunities including alternative media. A resource library has news stories and written material about TBI. Information is available on legislation that impacts you and how to get involved in letting state and local politicians know how best to serve you.

For organizations that provide services to veterans with TBI: This site provides a resource library to become more familiar with the causes, symptoms and accommodations for veterans with a TBI. It also addresses how to provide appropriate services to consumers.

There is a frequently updated Expanding TBI Services Manual that provides a model of how to expand services to veterans with TBI.

Specific Deliverables

Capacity Building

The CATBI website was designed, in part, to develop a model for Independent Living Centers (ILCs) to provide appropriate, accessible services to TBI survivors, including veterans. As activities and capacity building are accomplished, we will use the information to develop an instructional “how to” manual to effectively serve TBI survivors, including veterans. All information will be rolled out to ILCs throughout the state as well as other service providers and community based organizations.

TBI survivors, including veterans play an instrumental role in this project. We plan to coordinate a TBI Advisory Committee and Veterans’ Advisory Committee. Each Committee will include TBI survivors and be represented by a cadre of TBI consumers, service providers, local and statewide advocacy organizations and policy makers.

The TBI Advisory Committee will focus on TBI issues facing survivors. The Veterans’ Advisory Committee will focus on TBI and Veterans’ issues. The Committees will identify barriers and solutions to the barriers. They will provide feedback on the marketing and public policy activities as well as how to address ILCs and other community organizations effectively serving veterans’ with TBI.
