127 Brain Injury Resource Group – Bono

The Value of Community for Brain Injury

Jim Bono - From Minneapolis, MN - "As a brain injury survivor, you learn many things, and some you simply don’t understand. Then there are those topics that simply don’t make any sense at all and ya realize, that’s not my head - it just isn't working anyway. That model of misunderstanding and confusion is broken."

"So, welcome to BIRG, The Brain Injury Resource Group. We are the only formed, founded and staffed 501c3, truly non-profit focused on our global community around Acquired Brain Injury [ABI]. Simply said, survivor to survivor, caregiver to caregiver, medical community to medical community, legal field to legal field, social services and so on from Australia to Venezuela and all ports in between."

Connect with BIRG

In this episode, Jim points out the multiple values of joining this International Brain Injury Ressource community - for updates on neuroscience, resources for consultation, meaningful conversations with experienced colleagues and practitioners. It's easy, virtual, and a serious working-process contribution for those who feel alone with so many questions about their future treatment and recovery options.
