Join the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance on Saturday, April 1 from 3 to 7 p.m. at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Park for Unmasking Brain Injury in Minnesota. One thousand stories and masks will be on display in addition to special guests, Fox 9's Tim Blotz and NHL Defenseman, Jordan Leopold and our award-winning movie, Unmasking.
Unmasking Brain Injury in Minnesota is a community-based project that promotes awareness about brain injury through mask displays made by people affected by brain injury. Combining therapy, art and advocacy, each mask presents an entirely unique perspective on life with brain injury and will give survivors, care givers and professionals a voice and the means to educate others of what it is like to live with brain injury.

Brain Injury in the Homeless Community: Where Do We Go from Here
The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance invited representatives from a wide range of service providers serving the homeless as well as homeless individuals with brain injuries to participate in a half-day discussion intended to identify specific ways the Alliance could build stronger connections to the homeless community. The discussion, facilitated by a senior Wilder Research consultant, covered a wide range of topics including experiences in recognizing and responding to brain injury, stigma and misunderstandings associated with this type of injury, supports and services available now, and ideas about what supports might best serve this population in the future. The information from this dialogue will be used by the Alliance to plan for outreach and intervention efforts that can best meet the diverse range of needs among those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries.
