Brain Injury Awareness Month

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month.

Every year it brings awareness and provides support for individuals suffering from traumatic brain injuries. Every 9 seconds, someone sustains a brain injury.

At least 2.5 million people sustain brain injuries in the U.S. each year, and 50,000 die as a result.

More than 3.5 million children and adults have acquired brain injury (ABI) a year and live with brain injury-related disabilities.

This year’s theme for brain injury month aims to de-stigmatize brain injuries through outreach within the brain injury community and empower those who are survivors of brain injury and their caregivers.
