You Make the Recovery Journey Possible!
Thank you for visiting the NIBN website. As Peers—i.e., people living with an injured brain—we are so grateful for you, our Caregivers. You may be a family member, or you may be someone working closely with us and have become like family. We love you! We may not tell you that often enough, but it’s true. Each of us has our own unique challenges, and you help us navigate those challenges. Thank you. Thank you so very much.
This site is for you, too. Your life changed because of the injury we suffered. You are on your own journey, and there are so many people like you—people who have a loved one that they care for, advocate for, encourage and support. And in doing all those things, it’s often difficult. It seems like there’s no one who truly understands you and your personal situation. But, there is!
You are not alone as a Caregiver.
We hope that you can find each other through this site and through the Chapters, and provide understanding, support and encouragement for one another. We are together on this Recovery Journey, and we are all one Injured Brain Community, and we hope you consider participating in the following ways:
- Sign up at the bottom of the Home page to receive our newsletter
- Create a Profile and interact with other Caregivers, Peers and Providers via the Connection Board
- Learn about the programs NIBN offers, and participate as you can
- Join a Chapter and become active in your community (and help start a Chapter)
- Contribute resources to our Resource Page so others can benefit
- Allow yourself to be loved and supported by the people you interact with through this site
We look forward to interacting with you!
- You are not alone, and this site is for you to connect with other Caregivers.
- When united, Caregivers can help bring about needed changes to policies, programs and resources.
- Depending on the nature of the injury, your Peer for whom you care may not be able to tell you how much he or she loves you. But they do.

Knowing there are other Caregivers experiencing what I’m experiencing gives me strength and hope.
It’s hard to know she struggles, but I believe in her and it helps her continue.
