The Association envisions a world where all preventable brain injuries are prevented, all unpreventable brain injuries are minimized and all individuals who have experienced brain injury maximize their quality of life.
By acting as a clearinghouse of community service information and resources, participating in legislative advocacy, facilitating prevention awareness, hosting educational programs and encouraging research, the Brain Injury Association of America and its affiliates work to reach the millions of individuals living with the "silent epidemic" of brain injury.
The Brain Injury Association of America’s Family Helpline receives approximately 15,000 calls each year from individuals with brain injury, family members and providers seeking assistance, education and support. The Family Helpline is, for many, the first point of contact and support during the tumultuous times following a brain injury. The trained Information and Resources Department, who manages the Family Helpline, provides resources to individuals involved in brain injury.
