March is Brain Injury Awareness Month


For more than three decades, the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) has proudly led the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month by conducting an engaging public awareness campaign in March of each year. The Brain Injury Association of Indiana joins BIAA is promoting Brain Injury Awareness.

The theme for the 2021 campaign is “More Than My Brain Injury”.

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. Individuals who join us to help raise awareness with the #MorethanmyBrainInjury campaign are essential to:

  • De-stigmatizing brain injury through outreach within the brain injury community

  • Empowering those who have survived brain injury and their caregivers

  • Promoting the many types of support that are available to people living with brain injury

Join the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury campaign and help us educate others about what it’s like to live with a brain injury.

How can you get involved?

  • BIAA has created a printable “I am more than my brain injury” sign for you to complete, take a picture with and share with BIAI so we can put it out there on social media as well as our IN state website and potentially the national BIAA website. 

    • The goal is for survivors, caregivers, and advocates to print these signs at home, write whatever feels meaningful to them, and take photos to send to BIAI and also share on social media.
    • Please print the “I am More than my Brain Injury” sign found by clicking here #MorethanmyBrainInjury Template.jpg and fill it in with how you are defined by more than brain injury. Once you have completed your sign, please take a picture with the sign or just of the sign if you don’t want to be in it and email is to BIAI at biassociationofindiana@gmail.com. You can also text it to BIAI at 317.410.3532.
  • Get creative. Use our free, open-use campaign icon to show your support throughout Brain Injury Awareness Month. BIAA permits the unrestricted use of the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury icon as long as it’s used to raise awareness, advocacy, or funds for a brain injury-related cause.

COVID-19- #INthistogether


With the coronavirus pandemic evolving so quickly, we must all do what we can to slow the spread of the virus. The health and safety of Indiana residents and our community is our priority, and we are closely monitoring updates from the WHO, CDC, NIH, and state health department.

The Brain Injury Association of Indiana remains available to speak and assist during this time.  We will continue to assist and advocate for individuals with brain injury and their supports, provide support through our National Brain Injury Information Center, educate professionals to improve the quality of care, and seek cures for chronic brain injury through research.

We understand the impact that COVID-19 has on the communities we serve. We wanted to provide you with local and national information and resource links and support to assist, both in instrumental ways and for overall wellness.

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.

The disease causes respiratory illness (like the flu) with symptoms such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell.
