Personal Accounts of Recovery
Learn more by listening to the experiences of other survivors and families.
Each story of recovery begins with a brief Introduction (about 20 seconds in length). In other videos (2-4 min. each), you learn more about the personal aspects of traumatic brain injury. Each survivor shares information that encompasses:
- My Story - the circumstances surrounding the injury;
- Impact - resulting changes from TBI such as differences in thinking (cognitive status), physical and emotional well-being, and/or behavior;
- Consequences - adjustments that may have resulted for relationships, activities of daily living and/or work;
- Community - the importance of individual/community support (for both the survivor and family) and hope for continuing recovery.
