Forrest Willett experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI) after he was injured in a car accident in 2002. A victim of distracted driving, Forrest was a passenger in a vehicle that flipped while the driver was talking on a cell phone. At age 31, Forrest had to re-learn reading, speaking, and mathematics as a result of the auto accident. Eventually he joined a TBI support group, learning from others who were on their own journey to recovery. Now, Forrest has written a book about TBI recovery and is speaking at a local support group meeting in his community, reports NiagaraThisWeek.com.
There are a number of TBI support resources for local residents in the Orange County, California area. For example, The St. Jude Brain Injury Network of Fullerton offers a list of support groups in the Southern California area, including a disability peer support group in Santa Ana. The Orange Caregiver Resource Center also provides help for the caregivers of adults with traumatic brain injuries.
