How is the State of Alaska addressing traumatic brain injury?

The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services has announced the rate of traumatic brain injuries in the state is 28 percent above the national average. The staggering statistic has spurred the Division of Behavioral Health into action, and their TBI Project aims for "a service delivery system capable of meeting the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral treatment needs of TBI survivors throughout the state of Alaska." If you are suffering from the sustained effects of a head injury, this project hopes to provide resources for meeting your immediate needs.

Focusing first on identifying you and other injured parties and then on providing comprehensive resources for care, the TBI Project operates with a compassionate and culturally sensitive approach. Leaders are following established best practices and coordinating efforts with state and local organizations. As a result, you can expect the developing network to stress increased access to assessments that screen for TBI and to treatment that includes rehabilitative services. 

The project is not only breaking ground in establishing new avenues of assistance, but it is also determined to build the capacity of organizations so that your care is more likely to continue. The Alaska DHSS hopes to open the door for all adults and children who have suffered from a head injury to receive the aid needed to live productive lives post injury.

The Alaska DHSS also aims to expand efforts to prevent TBIs altogether. Though it is impossible to guarantee your safety from head injuries in a world where accidents happen, the TBI Project intends to do its part to educate the state's residents so they know their part in preventative practices.

This information only intends to provide information regarding TBIs and should not be interpreted as legal advice.
