Help for Traumatic Brain Injury

An interview with Dr. James A. Young

Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by an external force, such as a blast, motor vehicle accident or gunshot wound. No two brain injuries are the same — and TBI affects everyone differently. It can affect just about everything — the way you walk, talk, think and behave.

The Road Home Program can evaluate you for a TBI and help you cope with some of the psychological effects of your injury. We will also refer you to TBI specialists at Rush University Medical Center who have extensive experience in providing advanced medical care for these complex injuries.
