Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado

Brain Injury Professional Networking (BIPN)

The Brain Injury Professional Networking (BIPN) groups seek to “improve the availability of services and supports for individuals with brain injury, promote the ongoing sustainability of community support systems, and share resources”

Each BIPN group is unique to its geographic region and strives to serve its community/region based upon identified needs. Through a BIPN group, individuals will:

  • Connect with fellow providers who serve those with brain injuries in your community
  • Learn about resources, services & activities available to you & your clients
  • Identify the needs of survivors & address barriers to services
  • Establish a wide variety of action-oriented activities that your BIPN group can engage in, such as: apply for a TBI Trust Fund education grant money and create education projects that reach out to your community.
  • Enhance your knowledge & understanding of brain injury by sharing with colleagues
  • Develop a support system for yourself as an individual or organizational provider
  • Access speakers & in-service trainings
  • Broaden your awareness of brain injury issues & legislation
