BrainLine: For Service Members, Veterans, and Families Dealing with TBI or PTS
Issue Area: Quality of Life
BrainLine Military is a user-friendly national website serving service members, veterans, caregivers, and family members who are caring for or living with traumatic brain injury (TBI) or post-traumatic stress (PTS). The Bob Woodruff Foundation grant will improve BrainLine Military resources, materials, and content to provide military families with practical, concrete information and support for dealing with the social and emotional impact of traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress. The BrainLine articles, expert advice, and personal stories of veterans and caregivers living with TBI address the need commonly expressed by this population: they feel alone and isolated and nobody around them really understands what they are going through. This investment also provides BWF an opportunity to link with, and disseminate information about, our community of partners.
