Brain Injury Rehab Florida – The Brain Injury Association of America estimates that more than 3.6 million Americans (children and adults) have sustained a TBI (traumatic brain injury). Moreover, nearly 795,000 people have suffered an acquired brain injury (ABI) from non-traumatic causes. The data is terrifying, especially taking into account all the effects brain injuries have on the injured and their families.
Some of the physical and cognitive impacts of TBI may be permanent, but that doesn’t mean that we cannot do anything more to help TBI patients. There are actually a LOT of things that we can do to help bring back quality and a sense of normalcy to the patients’ and families’ lives. One great example is by supporting the National Brain Injury Awareness Month.
For more than three decades, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has proudly led the nation in observing National Brain Injury Awareness Month by conducting an engaging public awareness campaign in March of each year. The theme for this year’s campaign is #MoreThanMyBrainInjury.
The #MoreThanMyBrainInjury public awareness campaign provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families.
