Every March, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in recognizing Brain Injury Awareness Month, a time to acknowledge and support the millions of Americans impacted by brain injury.

BIAA’s current campaign, Change Your Mind, strives to educate the general public about brain injury and the needs of survivors and their families. The campaign also lends itself to outreach within the brain injury community to de-stigmatize the injury and empower those who have survived. In addition, it brings awareness to the types of support and tools that are available to advocate for access to care after brain injury.

  • 280,000 are hospitalized
  • 50,000 die

Every day, 137 people die in the United States because of a TBI-related injury. At least 5.3 million Americans live with a TBI-related disability. When someone sustains a brain injury, many people are affected:

  • Survivors and their parents, spouses, siblings, extended families, and friends
  • Healthcare providers
  • Insurance companies
  • Attorneys
  • Educators
  • Government agencies
