New Disability Resource

The Brain Injury Association of Minnesota is proud to announce the publication of the first annual Consumer Guide to Brain Injury Resources, available for free to anyone who requests it. The 110‑page, full‑color guide includes detailed consumer information and lists hundreds of service providers throughout Minnesota.

The consumer guide exposes persons with brain injury to all areas of the disability community, addressing educational, financial, housing, legal, medical, psychological, recreational, transportation, and vocational concerns. Consumers and professionals can also find information about support groups, brain injury symptoms and consequences, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Individuals who have survived brain injury, like people with other disabilities, often face considerable struggles ‘trying ‘to rebuild their lives. The consumer guide offers; them a centralized information source they will be able to refer to whenever a new question arises.

“The consumer guide is a valuable tool that consumers can use when making informed choices,” said Tom Gode, the Association’s Executive Director. “It allows people to have easy access to hundreds of providers right at their fingertips.”

Ten thousand copies of the guide have been printed. For a free copy or for more information, call the Association at (612) 378-2742 or (800) 669-6442.
