Every March, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month. They have a new awareness campaign, advocacy initiatives, events, fundraising opportunities, new publications, and more. This year’s campaign centers around “My Brain Injury Journey,” encouraging people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their families to share their stories and highlight their experiences of recovery and resilience.

Research from the TBI Model System Centers has shown that moderate to severe TBI can be considered a lifelong condition (PDF), with changes in physical, cognitive, emotional, and behavioral health. The Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center works with the Model System Centers to develop research-based information resources in English and Spanish to help people with TBI and their caregivers understand their injury and work together on the path to recovery. NARIC information specialists are also available to help in finding reliable information and community-level resources and support.
