The Marcus Institute for Brain Health (MIBH) provides exceptional care for people with mild to moderate brain injuries, including concussions, and changes in psychological health. The MIBH has specialty services for military Veterans with mild to moderate traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and post-traumatic stress (PTS), depression, and anxiety. We also serve retired athletes who have had head trauma and are in need of comprehensive care. The MIBH is located in the beautiful Anschutz Health and Wellness Center that is integrated into the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Our passion to improve care extends beyond the CU campus or even the borders of Colorado.
Our Philosophy of Care
At the MIBH, our complete focus is to help you get better. People struggling with the persistent effects of mild to moderate brain injuries see changes in emotions, physical functioning, and thinking. These changes directly affect everyday life and impact how we see ourselves as well as relationships with family, friends, and co-workers. At the MIBH, we believe in wellness for you and for your loved ones. We encourage your family to participate in your care. Health and wellness extend to all parts of your life, and we believe that with the right tools we can help make this your reality.
Why we exist
For many years, people struggled alone with mild to moderate brain injuries. Concussions have been misunderstood as “just a bump on the head.” Today we know differently. There are clear changes in brain functioning after injury and for many people there are long-term changes. This is the reality for military Veterans who may also struggle with PTS, depression, and anxiety. Our retired athletes are faced with the possibility of sport-related brain changes. We know that treatment for TBIs and changes in psychological health requires a sophisticated healthcare team. The MIBH exists to fill this critical need for comprehensive, customized care.
