On The Air: Brain Injury Radio “Another Fork in the Road”
Julie Kintz, Brain Injury Survivor &
Working Group Director of the Brain Injury Education & Research Clubhouse in Indiana
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
Many folks who have had a brain injury are left with many residual effects. Therapies such as physical, occupational, and speech are
offered in hospitals and rehab centers. Neuropsych is also offered, but the services for each of these therapies is limited. So what do folks do who still have needs? On this show, Julie Kintz, brain-injury survivor, focused on the needs of the brain-injured.
Julie spoke about the “Clubhouse” model, which provides a safe haven for those who live with mental illness after brain injury.
Julie is now working on developing her own “clubhouse, ” which will cater to folks who live with any sort of brain injury.
Zachary Stilwell, a member of the Carriage House Clubhouse in Fort Wayne, Indiana, stopped by to share his exuberant thoughts about his experiences with the clubhouse, too.
See you “On the Air!”
