North Dakota Brain Injury Network (NDBIN)

The North Dakota Brain Injury Network (NDBIN) is funded by a contract with the North Dakota Department of Human Services to provide information and support to individuals with brain injury and family members, and to assist them with navigating the service system.

The NDBIN program office is located at the Center for Rural Health, University of North Dakota School of Medicine & Health Sciences in Grand Forks, North Dakota.

NDBIN staff can provide personalized assistance in finding support groups, referrals to pre-employment training, and help identifying and accessing appropriate benefits and programs. Eligible individuals must be a legal resident of North Dakota and have experienced a brain injury.

Since 2013, NDBIN has been working throughout North Dakota toward raising awareness of brain injury prevention. NDBIN staff provide information through outreach and education, referral services, peer support, and more. The annual Mind Matters Conference on Brain Injury, facilitated by NDBIN, provides a forum for brain injury survivors, family members, expert speakers, and healthcare providers to discuss brain injury services and share best practices.
