The primary focus of TBI.org is positive communication between persons with brain injury, family members/ caregivers/friends of persons with brain injury, those many professionals who treat persons with brain injury and community members in order to create positive changes and enhance public awareness and knowledge of acquired/traumatic brain injury. Originally created as The Perspectives Network in 1997 – TBI.org was updated by Elaine Jones in 2015.

Our Mission

To enhance, expand and extend the quality of care available to Caregivers and Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injury. We have articles, some from the The Perspectives Network but also from other select sources. Topics are very broad as are the experiences and information shared by survivors, family members and professionals but all of them focus on the issues of brain injury.
