The Brain Injury Association of Indiana is a nonprofit 501 c (3) service organization dedicated to reducing the incidence and impact of brain injury through education, advocacy, support, prevention and by facilitating inter-agency commitment and collaboration.
We envision that people with brain injury and their caregivers will be well served, understood, empowered, and supported in living full and meaningful lives.
Founded in 1981, the Brain Injury Association of Indiana is the first charter chapter of the national Brain Injury Association of America. Our members include people with brain injuries, family members, friends, and professionals who work with people who have had brain and head injuries. We support and advocate for persons with brain injury and their families throughout the state of Indiana.
March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. Every 9 seconds, someone in the United States sustains a brain injury. More than 3.5 million children and adults sustain an acquired brain injury (ABI) each year, but the total incidence is unknown.
Brain injury does not discriminate and can happen to anyone.
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 #ChangeYourMind.
Please join Brain Injury Association of Indiana, Brain Injury Association of America and all of the individuals and families living with acquired brain injury every day to raise awareness and educate on this often silent epidemic.
