Today we are excited to share with you about The Center for Brain Health, an organization that has been incredibly supportive of Travis Mills and thousands of veterans who were injured while serving our country. The Center for Brain Health hosted a Travis: A Soldier’s Story screening, and has been supportive of the film throughout the entire journey. This group was also an Honorary Chair for the Veterans Day event. We invite you to share this information with veterans in your life who would benefit from the research and treatments they offer.
About the Organization “The Center for BrainHealth and Brain Performance Institute are committed to empowering one of our greatest national assets – military service members. Warrior initiatives at the Center for BrainHealth and Brain Performance Institute aim to arm veteran and active duty service members with the necessary tools to achieve successful, enriching and fulfilling personal and professional lives by proactively optimizing brain performance, building resilience in cognitive brain function, and reversing losses in cognitive capacity. By removing barriers and building bridges, we are helping America’s brave fighting men and women, both in and out of uniform, successfully reintegrate into civilian life and enjoy the quality of life they so courageously defend.” (source)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Study The Center for BrainHealth is studying the efficacy of a novel, innovative therapeutic approach to treat veterans diagnosed with PTSD.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Study and Decision Making Study Peer-reviewed research from the Center for BrainHealth has shown that guided brain training significantly improves higher-order cognitive performance in civilian adults with TBI. The impact of this research could enhance veterans’ mental productivity, improve cognitive capacity as well as rescue the long-term burden of disability on families and society as a whole.

High Performance Brain Training at the Brain Performance Institute The Strategic Memory Advanced Reasoning Training (or SMART) program, developed at the Center for BrainHealth, is based on more than 30 years of neuroscience research. The brain-training program equips veteran service members with an essential toolkit to become strategic learners, deeper-level thinkers and innovation generators.
Brain Performance Institute The programs mentioned above are offered at the Center for Brain Health, but they is also reaching warriors nationwide through the Brain Performance Institute. Since its launch, they’ve reached more than 500 warriors in 8 states. Learn more about the program in this video:
We are incredibly grateful for the vital role the Center for Brain Health is playing in the process of offering healing to men and women who have served our country.
