Montana tribes form brain injury support groups
Two brain injury support groups will be meeting for the first time on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation and on the Crow Reservation in Montana.

Montana has the second highest rate of traumatic brain injuries, with motor vehicle wrecks as the leading cause, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. American Indians and Alaska Natives have higher death and hospitalization rates for traumatic brain injury than any other racial group, the CDC says.

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services is providing support for the two support groups.
