Brain Injury and Correctional Facilities  

  • Research continues to be discovered regarding the prevalence of brain injuries in correctional facilities. In addition, the majority of facilities do not have policies in place to identify brain injuries or provide training for employees to on best practices for working with individuals with brain injury. 
  • Given the difficulties individuals may encounter following a brain injury, it’s more possible that their actions may bring them into contact with the justice system. Helping to reduce recidivism rates for individuals with brain injuries starts with screening and connecting individuals with beneficial resources.
