TBI Project

The Traumatic Brain Injury Justice database stemmed from conducting research that was aimed at understanding what screening and supportive service programs are available at a national level. The research included reviewing studies, reports, and speaking with state project investigators and state agencies. In speaking with other state agencies and project investigators we aimed at learning about their pilot’s strengths, pitfalls, limitations, and recommendations for improvement.

Definitions

Yes: State or territory answered when contacted and confirmed either past, current or future projects plans in this area.

Interested: State or territory expressed interest in expanding TBI advocacy work to this area in the near future.

No: State or Territory has definitively stated they have not had a past or current or plans to launch a study, project, pilot in this area.

Unsure: State or Territory was contacted through their Protection & Advocacy agency, Brain Injury Association/Alliance or Lead Brain Injury Representative and no formal contact was made.

*While no formal contact was made, we have labeled certain states as ‘unsure’ as we cannot definitively say a state or territory has had a past project in place or a future one in the works.

Why a TBI Justice Database?

Upon researching and interviewing states with known programs such as Colorado, Washington, Alabama, and Iowa (to name a few) there was a recurring question for the lead investigators/agencies: ‘Do you know what your neighboring state or any other state is working on?’ Most of them would consistently say: ‘We are not too familiar with, our neighboring states, however, we are interested in expanding into another sector of our justice system so if there are states out there that have done different sectors of the justice system, we would be interested in discussing.’ This sparked the idea of continuing to research whether a national list of state TBI screening and supportive programs in the justice system has been compiled.

In connecting with NASHIA (National Association of State Head Injury Administrators), NDRN (National Disability Rights Network), BIAA (Brain Injury Association of America) and the Protection and Advocacy agencies, confirmed that a national list of TBI screening and supportive services programs/pilots and studies have not been collected. With this knowledge, the team set out to assemble studies, pilot, and program information from each state through repeated outreach to their state Brain Injury Association/Alliance, Protection & Advocacy Agency, Lead Brain Injury Representative and State Brain Injury Council.

Individualized state and territory information

The overarching goal of this database is to house individualized state and territory information in a concise and digestible way that will allow individuals from all backgrounds to view what is happening in this area of brain injury and justice involvement. The audience that this database is intended to serve is varied as we are expecting primary investigators, brain injury survivors, council members, state representatives, academics, among others to access this data bank to view what their state has worked on. A secondary goal of this database is to assist states in connecting with others that have worked with populations that a state may be looking to expand into. This database will be modifiable and updated as information from states comes in after publishing. Information currently available on the database is what has been provided through several outreach attempts, referrals to reports and studies, and our team’s research of academic, justice and medical journals.
