Traumatic Brain Injury 

CAHEC has been awarded the opporunity to help promote identifying and treating a Traumatic Brain Injury through The Rocky Mountain MIRECC.  The Rocky Mountain MIRECC has developed a Tool Kit with lots of information located here. The tool kit provides behavioral health and medical providers, Veterans, and the community necessary information to address the needs of individuals with a history of TBI and co-ocurring mental health conditions.  This toolkit is designed to assist in identifying TBI and associated co-occurring problems and determining potential need for further evaluation and/or mental health treatment modification. 

Recommendations for current Healthcare Professionals include checking with patients on the following:

  • Ask about previous head and neck injuries

  • Monitor and track symptoms

  • Find out what resources are available

 

This information can help inform care!
