Minds Matter Concussion Program Resources

As part of the Minds Matter Concussion Program at CHOP, a series of educational resources have been developed for use by teachers, school nurses, coaches, athletic directors and trainers, healthcare providers, and parents to help children and youth optimize their recovery from a concussion injury. A website, flyers, facts sheets, infographics, and short videos provide evidence-based, best practice information and tips for concussion care education.
