Recovering from a traumatic brain injury is a long-term process that affects the person with TBI and their family and caregivers. This comic describes the stages of recovery and provides some strategies for managing TBI.
In the first few weeks after a brain injury, brain function is often decreased. Beyond the first few weeks, people with TBI often experience long-term effects. It’s important to establish healthy coping strategies that will help throughout the recovery process. This comic discusses the following strategies:
- Take time for yourself
- Keep a regular schedule
- Get regular exercise
- Participate in support groups
