Join us for the Brain Injury Support Conference! While the name is new, the goals of this Conference continue along the lines of our Consumer and Family Conference, which we've held for over a decade. As before, this free conference is an opportunity for individuals with brain injury, family members and loved ones to participate in workshops and sessions that focus on innovations in the world of brain injury care, therapy and rehabilitation. This conference will be held on Saturday, March 9, beginning at 12 p.m. at New Life Presbyterian Church.
Join the Minnesota Stroke Association for our Stroke Basics classes in 2024! These classes will discuss the different types of stroke, how strokes happen, and how injuries to specific areas of the brain can influence different symptoms. Participants will also be able to describe the life changes that occur with stroke, and discuss some general stroke statistics.Click here for full information and dates for our Stroke Basics classes.

Few people understand the personal impact brain injury can have. Its effects often are subtle and difficult to express. In March of 2016, the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance began the Unmasking Brain Injury in Minnesota project - a statewide community-based art project that enlisted the participation of over a thousand individuals living with the effects of brain injury. Unmasking allowed individuals affected by brain injury to design masks that communicate their unique perspectives and altered outlooks. It gave survivors and caregivers a voice to illuminate their life with a brain injury; to show others that persons living with a disability due to brain injury are deserving of respect, compassion and the same opportunities afforded all citizens in their respective communities.
