According to the Minnesota Department of Health, Approximately 1,000 Minnesotans experience a traumatic brain injury from an assault in a given year. Victims living with a brain injury after an assault or other criminal activity may see changes in their thinking, emotions, physical health, and more. These changes can impact their ability to find work, maintain stable housing, and navigate the complex healthcare and social service systems. Understanding the impact of brain injury on a victim’s life is therefore crucial to best supporting their recovery. In this presentation, we will provide a functional definition of brain injury, review incidence and prevalence, discuss common symptoms and ways to identify injury, and describe resources available to support victims and their families.
