The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month by conducting an awareness campaign in March each year. The theme for the 2018 to 2020 campaign is Change Your Mind.
This week and all throughout March, the American Brain Society hugs the leaders behind the #ChangeYourMind campaign, which 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. Through their efforts, they are seeking to reach out to those within the brain injury community to de-stigmatize the injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the many types of support that are available.
