Independence Amplified Maryland | Prevalence of Brain Injuries with those involved in the Justice System
July 12, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Speaker: Najah Britton, Brain Injury Association of Maryland
Did you know a recent study found that 60% of those with criminal justice involvement have a TBI? This is compared to 8.5% of the general population. Hear more about this issue that is largely ignored by the criminal justice and parole systems as well as the impact it has on those with a TBI. Najah will share some best practices from other places as well.

Independence Amplified Maryland, a program of the Maryland Centers for Independent Living, is your opportunity to know what’s going on in the world of disability and take control of your future.
The Centers for Independent Living in Maryland collaborate on this weekly live stream. The stream, which can be watched live via Zoom or viewed later on YouTube, features speakers on the current issues that most interest the disability community, families, and service providers.
You’ll hear from disability leaders, public officials, and most importantly—you, our community, and listeners. The show educates the public about the capacities of people with disabilities through the message of I AM:
I AM independent. I AM safe. I AM prepared. I AM in charge.
