Alaska Division of Public Health
Their contractor CBIRT (Center on Brain Injury Research and Training) is planning to conduct training with DJJ staff the last week of September 2022 about TBI and how to administer the screening tool. With funding from the Alaska Mental Health Trust and partnership with Alaska’s Educational Resource Agency – SERRC (South East Regional Resource Center), a new position has been created to field DJJ referrals for youth who screen into the pilot project. The new position is currently being hired and is called the Youth Brain Injury Coordinator. This position will be mentored by our CBIRT contractor which coincides with other deliverables such as rolling out a “Return to School” program in Alaska that includes training for education staff about TBI and creating a concussion accommodations form for acute window when a student is returning to school right after a head injury.
