Have you or someone you love experienced a brain injury? Are you a medical professional who wants to learn more about working with brain injury patients? Black Hills Brain Health is offering a series of free, ongoing classes about living with and recovering from brain injury, beginning in December. Classes are led by neuropsychologist Dr. Justine Ashokar and her staff, who have extensive experience in brain injury recovery.
January 4, 2023: Enhancing social skills after brain injury
Class will be held from 3:30-4:30 pm.
For questions and to sign up, contact Black Hills Brain Health, 605.343.7297 or [email protected].
Pre-registration encouraged! A virtual option is available for those in rural areas or unable to attend in person.
Classes will meet in the first floor meeting room at Black Hills Works main office at 3650 Range Road, Rapid City. More sessions on other topics will be offered in upcoming months.
Black Hills Brain Health (formerly known as The Brain Rehabilitation Center) works closely with brain injury survivors, their medical providers, and their caregivers and family to help them heal and regain as much independence as possible after an injury. Many children and young adults suffer brain injuries such as concussions during sports and other activities. Adults in rural areas also experience brain injury from car accidents, farm or ranch injuries, and jobsite accidents. Brain injuries can also be acquired through strokes, cancer, and other illnesses.
Recovering from brain injury requires a lot of support. Survivors and their family may feel confused and overwhelmed about where to turn next or where to go for answers. Medical providers often desire more information on brain injury recovery as well.
These classes will provide assistance along your way and important connections with other survivors, caregivers, and medical providers in our area. No matter what kind of brain injury you’ve experienced, you’ll find these classes beneficial and supportive. Six more classes will be held in the months ahead.
These classes are made possible through a grant from the South Dakota Department of Health.
