No Warrior Left Behind is training First Responders to deal more effectively with veterans in crisis. The training involves an in-depth look at Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)  as well as Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

Training includes an overview of TBI/PTSD, traditional therapies, psychopharmacology, non-traditional therapies, and best practices for working with those in crisis. Veterans who have endured extreme physical and mental trauma give first-hand accounts of their experiences as well as any encounters they had experienced with first responders.

The reviews are overwhelmingly positive and we look forward to expanding this training to other agencies in the future.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of symptoms and disabilities. The impact on a person and his or her family can be devastating.

Traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. TBI’s range from mild to serious. Mild TBI’s may affect your brain cells temporarily. More-serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications
