Abstract

People with traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related disability often need services and other types of support to return to productive lives; thus, improving access to available TBI services is a priority for a variety of states' agencies, such as Human Services and Public Health. Although infrastructure and resources vary from state to state, each can benefit by learning about how other states link people with TBI to services. In this report, we summarize Colorado's experience in exploring and developing better ways to link state residents with TBI to services. Recommendations for improving the system of linking people to services in Colorado included the following: (1) expanding the population targeted for linkage to services beyond those who are hospitalized; (2) improving access to information about available services; and (3) increasing the availability of services.
