March is Brain Injury Awareness Month
More Than My Brain Injury
Brain Injury Awareness Month is a time for education, connection, and awareness. The More Than My Brain Injury campaign, created by BIAA, provides a platform for educating the public about the incidence of brain injury. It aims to de-stigmatize the injury, highlight the diversity of the brain injury community, and empower those who have survived.
This March, we shared information about our programs, the resources we have available to the brain injury community, and shared the stories of people who are more than their brain injuries the stories of their caregivers.
We worked to convince the General Assembly to provide more funding for necessary community-based brain Injury supports and services.
And we provided education on the link between brain injury and homelessness through the development and dissemination of an outreach packet to homeless services providers.
Brain injury awareness doesn’t just stop after March is over. We continue to raise awareness, educate the public, and support people with brain injuries and those that love them.
Thank you, Virginia brain injury community, for your support of our work. It’s not possible to do what we do without the people who tell their stories, write their elected officials, fight for access to critically necessary services and supports and donate to BIAV to support this important work.
