SHEBOYGAN, WI--(Marketwire - February 14, 2013) - TBI Voices is a growing and interactive free online resource that exists for the purpose of providing people who have been affected by traumatic brain injuries with information and perspective that's provided by others who have lived through this experience. TBI Voices has been publishing videos online that feature different traumatic brain injury survivors, and the Web site has recently released another series of videos that visitors are encouraged to watch.
Specifically, TBI Voices has launched a series of videos that interview a woman named Helena, who was involved in a single-vehicle car accident near Green Bay, Wisconsin in 2007 and who survived a traumatic brain injury. The video series appears in interview format and Helena answers several questions regarding her memories of the crash that caused these injuries, the recovery process that followed the crash and different challenges that she has experienced since she was released from the hospital and has fought to overcome the symptoms related to her original injury.
Visitors are encouraged to log onto TBI Voices to watch these videos of Helena, as they are split into 12 different parts. These videos can be found at the URL of http://tbivoices.com/helena1.php, and different topics covered in these 12 videos include her background as a music teacher, who she was before her traumatic brain injury, her struggle to recover from the head injury, her difficulties in identifying cognitive deficits that resulted from her car accident and many other issues and challenges she has faced.
This video series featuring Helena is just another in a long line of videos that have been produced and published by TBI Voices. These videos generally involve people who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and who have survived but faced different difficulties afterward. As more people volunteer to be featured in these videos, more videos will be published and available free of charge.
One of the many reasons that TBI Voices is making this effort is because of the troubling statistics regarding traumatic brain injuries in the United States. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or the CDC, more than 50,000 people are killed because of traumatic brain injuries every year and more than 400,000 more are forced to live with what are described as long-term disabilities.
About TBI Voices

traumatic brain injuries
and to be available 24 hours per day for anyone who may be interested in learning more about these severe brain injuries and other forms of head trauma that can and do continue to affect patients and their loved ones for years, decades and even lifetimes.
