March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
Brain injury will be the biggest public health problem in the United States by 2020, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Brain Injury Awareness Month is a time to bring awareness to the needs of brain injury survivors and the importance of preventing brain injury.  To learn more about raising awareness, check out our tool kit.

Each year, 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury in the United States, and  emergency departments treat increasing numbers of children and adolescents for recreation-related brain injuries, including concussions.  Numbers and rates are highest in football and girls' soccer.

In Texas, more than 144,000 people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. That’s one every four minutes.  An estimated 440,000 Texans have a disability related to a traumatic brain injury.
Brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time.

We’d love to hear what you are doing for brain injury awareness month!
