Craig Hospital

In Colorado alone, more than 7,200 veterans will return from conflict with traumatic brain injuries. For those with this serious, yet often invisible injury the transition to civilian life can be especially difficult. When these conditions are untreated a host of problems can occur, including substance abuse and other unhealthy behaviors, suicide, physical health problems, lower workplace productivity and employment rates, marital and parenting difficulties, and homelessness.

While a variety of public and nonprofit services are available to veterans with TBI, navigating the complex web of programs and systems is daunting. Operation TBI Freedom (OTF) helps veterans, and their families optimize benefits to which they are entitled, and access needed services efficiently and without duplication of effort. OTF also provides direct services not available elsewhere to address crisis situations and position veterans for long-term success.

Operation TBI Freedom (OTF) is a program of Craig Hospital that provides support for veterans and active-duty military personnel with traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
