A Brain Injury Survivor's Guide


A Few Good Doctors
Doctor Checklist
        The Brain Injury Resource Center Wellness Inventory  is a checklist of  indicators of  health, and well being.  It was designed to to help you track, and measure indicators of your health and well-being. It also looks at your lifestyle and your style of  problem solving.  Briefly stated,  it asks you to score your sense of  your state of health, happiness, and prosperity. 

     Indicators of health and well being have to do with  how healthy you feel, and how well you were able to meet your daily obligations. Other indicators have to do with  how you handled any problems you might have encountered.  Still others look at how you perceive yourself, and how you interact with others. 

      This Wellness Inventory can increase your self awareness and help you to identify patterns, or characteristics you might  want to change. Designed for daily use it can help you track  patterns, or  behavior that might signal the presence of serious problems.  Warning: A high number of "Hardly" or "None" answers on this inventory could indicate the presence of serious physical and or mental health conditions and should be immediately brought to the attention of a qualified physician, therapist or other appropriate professional.
