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.
Many people with disabilities have their lives defined for them. BIAUSA’s #MoreThanMyBrainInjury campaign gives individuals a chance to overcome those definitions, allowing them to tell their own stories and change the narrative of their lives. It encourages them to speak out, look at different perspectives and become supporters who create fundraisers for brain injury services, support, and research across America.

Every 9 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a brain injury.
Dr. Diane helps increase awareness during this Brain Injury Awareness Month by highlighting Acquired Brain Injuries. Acquired brain injury (ABI) is any injury to the brain that is not hereditary, congenital, degenerative, or induced by birth trauma. Over 3.5 million children and adults sustain an ABI yearly.
Typical causes of ABI include:
- Infectious Disease
- Lightning Strike
- Near Drowning
- Oxygen Deprivation (Hypoxia/Anoxia) Stroke
- Seizure Disorder
- Substance Abuse/Overdose
- Toxic Exposure
- Traumatic brain injury
- Leading Causes of Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a type of ABI. An external force causes a TBI or trauma to the brain. The number of people who sustain TBIs and do not seek treatment is unknown. One in every 60 people in the U.S. lives with a TBI-related disability.
The annual impact of TBI in the U.S. is significant:
- 2.2 million are treated for TBI in Emergency Departments and Trauma Centers
- 230,000 are hospitalized
- 50,000 die
Every day, 176 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:
- Parents, spouses, siblings, extended families, and friends
- Healthcare providers
- Insurance companies
- Government agencies
- Employers of all types
