Welcome to the Neural Injury Center
Montana ranks second in the nation for brain injury fatalities, with countless others living with chronic effects of milder concussions or more serious head injuries. The State has one of the highest per capita Veteran populations in the US, with nearly 1 in 10 residents being Veterans, and of these, nearly 80% having served as Combat Veterans. At the University of Montana alone, there are between 550-700 student Veterans at any given time, and over 350 student athletes, both groups at significantly increased risk for head injury. Student Veterans and athletes remain at the heart of our mission. The Neural Injury Center, located on the University of Montana campus, provides screening and support to those with a diagnosed or suspected brain injuries. Partnering with multiple campus-based and external providers, such as Athletic Training, Physical Therapy, Speech and Language, the VETS Office, Neuropsychology, Pharmacy, Social Work, Biomedical Sciences, and others; we are able to offer screening and support in multiple domains. Collaborating with neuroscientists and other researchers, the Center also conducts cutting-edge neural injury research, and provides education and outreach to communities in Montana.
If you or someone you know is struggling with physical, cognitive, or emotional challenges associated with a brain injury; we’re here to help, and welcome you to contact us for more information or to arrange for a screening visit.
