Written by the founder of The Perspectives Network, this identification card helped out in situations where people mistook many of the symptoms of her TBI for intoxification or other similarly expressed conditions (including mental illness since she does become disoriented in certain stressful situation). What started out as a person tool was made available to other survivors because of the volume of requests she had to share it. It has been carried by survivors in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and South Africa.
FAQS (Frequently Asked Questions about Brain Injury):
We have had had the TPN FAQ translated into a number of languages.

Currently, you can find the FAQ in: English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Chinese and Greek.
This is a collection of articles, primarily from the TPN Magazine 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.Many of out articles are not listed by title anywhere on this site simply because there are too many of them. However, they do show up in search results.
We've created this area as a gathering point for various Diagrams, Signs and Symptoms List and Survivor Tools all related to brain injury. We'll also be adding statistical information in the near future since weíve had so many requests for that type of information.

TPN MESSAGE BOARD:
Sadly, after having a message board up and available since we first appeared on-line more than15 years ago, we have had to remove it. We did because we were, yet again, being slammed (approx. 2,000 per day) by robot spammers. There wasnít anything we could to prevent it and we simply donít have the time to manually deal with that amount of mail .. actually, letís call it what it was ... pornographic filth.
We hope that once you've gone through our site, that you'll come back and sign our guestbook. While we would welcome your comments regarding our site, we especially hope that you'll leave messages of hope and encouragement to the other visitors.
