Veterans Resources

2016 Guide to Veteran Education Benefits. In the course of our research we found that most veterans were not aware of all the grants, scholarships and education resources that are available to them. So we decided to create a user-friendly guide that includes features like our GI Bill calculator, grants and scholarship directories, and interviews with the top universities that have programs designed specifically to support veteran higher education. We hope our guide will not only answer common questions, but make it easier for veterans to leverage the educational benefits they have earned.

Mental Health Resources

After a brain injury, mental health issues are often misdiagnosed and easily overlooked. At the same time, someone who has experienced a brain injury may be diagnosed with a mental health label and the diagnosis of brain injury may be missed. There are some overlapping issues that may look similar like depression, anxiety, impulsiveness, challenges filtering emotions and challenges controlling reactions to events. At times, people need the involvement of a person experienced in brain injury and someone with strong mental health experience. When contacting any of the following resources, make sure they understand the overlapping issues you may be experiencing.
