MDCH Service Improvement Efforts

Accomplishments of the MDCH Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Grant

TBI Services and Prevention Council
The TBI Services and Prevention Council (SPC) is made up of survivors, family members, providers and professionals who help guide MDCH and other public agencies in implementing the TBI systems change efforts. This includes serving as advisors in regard to the federal HRSA/MCHB TBI grant. The full Council meets quarterly and its committees - Training, Data, Prevention, and Policy & Procedures - usually meet between those meetings.

If you are interested in learning more about the SPC or attending a council meeting, please send an email to SPC@mphi.org.
