In response to growing interest in the topic of traumatic brain injury and the impact the presence of a history of brain injury can have on access to and the delivery of behavioral health services, Mid-Shore Mental Health Systems is offering a half day training on TBI.

Individuals in need of mental health and substance related disorders treatment services may be living with neurobehavioral difficulties as a result of having sustained a TBI or multiple TBIs over the course of their lives. Consequently they can face challenges in both accessing and successfully utilizing behavioral health services.

Through a facilitated webinar and interactive exercises, this training will provide an overview of TBI, including the ramifications of unrecognized and undiagnosed brain injury, and its impact on behavioral health. Attendees will be introduced to a brief TBI screening tool that can be used to elicit an individual’s possible history of TBI. Accommodations and strategies to engage and support individuals living with TBI to maximize mental health and substance abuse treatment outcomes will be shared.
