Big Tip: Your State Head Injury Administrator
This week I travelled to Spokane, Washington, all over Idaho, and even Montana. While in Idaho, I had the pleasure of chatting with admissions coordinator Keith Bolen of State Hospital North in Orofino, ID, about Idaho’s lack of services for brain injury survivors.
Fortunately, you can find your state head injury administrator (SHIA) online at nashia.org. Just click on programs, then on state, then on your area. You should find a listing that includes an email address and a phone number. If your SHIA has a mailing list, ask to get on it so that you can find out everything you need to know to become an advocate for other survivors in your state.
