Group Description

The work of this group has been moved to another group, and we are no longer taking new participants in this group. If you would like to join the current group, please contact http://braininjurynetwork.org/signouraddressbook.html and explain your interest. This forum is strictly for individuals who have sustained acquired brain injuries. This is a brain injury survivor public policy and advocacy forum. Everyone here is a brain injury survivor and survivor advocate. Since 2006 we have been developing and disseminating a public policy platform on behalf of our brain injury survivor community. ABI causes include aneurysm, hypoxia, illness, stroke, toxin, trauma, or tumor. “Survivor” designations include abi survivors, brain injury survivors, anoxic brain injury survivors, brain tumor survivors, post-abi survivors, post-tbi survivors, stroke survivors and tbi survivors. Other terms associated with survivors in this group include anoxic or hypoxic brain injury, blast brain injury, brain aneurysm, brain injury related to surgical procedure, brain trauma, catastrophic brain injury, cerebral hemorrhage, chemo brain, coma, concussion, diffuse brain injury, head injury, head trauma, head wound, locked-in syndrome, mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), moderate brain injury, penetrating head wound, persistently unaware state, postconcussion syndrome, post-traumatic brain injury syndrome, serious or severe brain injury, and skull fracture. The focus of SABI is on collective advocacy and self-advocacy for people with brain injuries. SABI is operated by the Brain Injury Network (BIN), an international and national, consumer-driven, advocacy, and non-profit organization for people with acquired brain injuries. BIN is located in California USA and has been operated for and by survivors since 1998. Please see our additional human rights statements, public policy platform, procedural recommendations, and service provider guidelines on our website.
