March is Brain Injury Awareness Month: 2021-2023 Campaign - More Than My Brain Injury (Brain Injury Association of America, BIAA)
There are more than 5.3 million children and adults in the United States who are living with a permanent brain injury-related disability. That’s one in every 60 people.
If you know someone who is living with brain injury – or if you have one yourself – you know that brain injury is not an event or an outcome. It’s the start of a misunderstood, misdiagnosed, underfunded neurological disease.
The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month in March each year. The theme for the 2021 to 2023 campaign is More Than My Brain Injury.
Join the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury campaign and help us educate others about what it’s like to live with a brain injury. We want everyone, everywhere to join us in:
- Increasing understanding of brain injury as a chronic condition
- Reducing the stigma associated with having a brain injury
- Showcasing the diversity of injury and the demographics of the community
- Improving care and support for individuals with brain injury and their families
