Navigating resources can be a difficult and overwhelming task. KBIC staff is available to help identify the right resources for you.
Staff members have extensive knowledge in the field of brain injury through work experience, certifications, research, conferences and continuing education. Please seek out staff members if you have any questions. If we can’t answer your questions, we can direct you to resources to help you.
Brain Injury Associations
Almost every state in the country has a brain injury association. Your state chapter will have the most current information on resources in your area and may have their own resources for you to access. This is also the place to go to find out about brain injury support groups in your community – for survivors and families.
KBIC has a wealth of information and materials on brain injury to help support you through your journey. We have a large library of books, articles and magazines about brain injury, written by survivors, families and professionals as well as numerous self-help books available for loan. Please ask staff if you are looking for recommendations.
One of the best free resources we’ve found for the most up to date information on research, news and helpful tips about brain injury is www.brainline.org. You can sign up to receive email updates on what’s happening locally, nationally and internationally in the brain injury world.
Area agencies are private organizations throughout the state of New Hampshire that provide a wide range of supports for people with disabilities. They are funded through the NH Department of Health and Human Services – Bureau of Developmental Services. Among other assistance, area agencies can provide funding for acquired brain injury survivors to participate in activities and services through the Acquired Brain Disorder (ABD), Developmental Disability (DD) and Choices for Independence (CFI) waiver programs. If you or someone you know lives in New Hampshire and needs support following an acquired brain injury, we recommend contacting your local area agency to determine the individual’s eligibility for area agency services. For more information, visit Area Agencies (csni.org)
