Brain Injury Awareness & Screening

March 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm EDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event


March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Join Amanda Tower, from the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission (MRC) for an overview of brain injury and screening that BH Clinicians can utilize in their work. The connection between brain injury and behavioral health is becoming more recognized and pertinent in our everyday work. Join us as we explore the bi-directional relationship between brain injury and behavioral health, high risk populations and the importance of screening for brain injury in behavioral health settings. Understand how to identify potential exposures to brain injury and how it can support someone’s ongoing engagement in behavioral health treatments and services.
Online Brain Injury Screening and Support System or OBISSS is a tool that can support providers, agencies, and community champions to identify potential exposures to a brain injury and support someone with potential cognitive impairments. Learn about the basics of brain injury, histories and populations that could indicate a potential risk for brain injury. We will also review valuable accommodations, available state services and community-based resources to support someone with a potential brain injury.


After completing this training, participants will be able to:
  • List brain injury risk factors in a person’s history.
  • Use the OBISSS Tool
  • Describe valuable accommodations and referrals for someone who screens positive for a possible brain injury.
