Brain Injury Awareness Month provides an opportunity to educate everyone from children and teens to adults and seniors about ways to protect ourselves.


People who have suffered a brain injury are encouraged to tell their own stories as well as to change the narrative of their lives. Some have used social media to show their experience and share their progress. Others have written letters to the editors of major media outlets to raise awareness of the lack of funding for many services needed to aid in their recovery.

Indeed, one out of every 60 people or 5.3 million children and adults in the United States has a permanent brain injury-related disability. Also, every nine seconds someone in the U.S. will suffer a brain injury every whether it’s a concussion or something far worse such as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
