In addition to our research and clinical services, the Brain Injury Research Center provides resources for people with brain injuries, their loved ones, and professionals in the traumatic brain injury (TBI) community. These resources include answers to frequently asked questions about brain injury, information about students with TBI, and professional tools for documenting and treating TBI.
We offer comprehensive treatment manuals for patients, providers, and peer mentors, that address the needs and challenges of specific TBI patient populations. We provide a number of screening and assessment tools, including a brain injury questionnaire that helps identify brain injury, resources for treating children with TBI, and instructional videos on topics such as hidden brain injury and depression.
Our seasonal e-newsletter provides updates on current research at the Brain Injury Research Center, recent research results, and other timely information.
BIRC COVID-19 Response, Information, and Resources
Message from the Brain Injury Research Center. Additionally, we provide tips, resources, and ideas for self-care to support well-being during home isolation/quarantine.
As the COVID pandemic continues to alter care delivery across our health system, we want to help ensure that vulnerable populations such as individuals with disabilities are connected to resources and care that is available to them. Individuals with brain injury, spinal cord injury, chronic pain, and other disabilities may be uniquely impacted by the cancellation of medical appointments, limitations to home health care, and disruption of daily routines and therapies.
The Brain Injury Research Center at Mount Sinai and the Rehabilitation Faculty Practice Associates have shifted their care platform to video visits in an effort to ensure that individuals with disabilities and/or musculoskeletal injury are able to access specialized cognitive and behavioral health care during these stressful times. Our rehabilitation psychology colleagues in the Spinal Cord Injury program have done the same, and our physician colleagues in Physical Medicine are also available for video visits. We are able to provide psychotherapy, cognitive rehabilitation, virtual support groups, and medical management including prescription refills and pain management.
