March is Brain Injury Awareness Month: Advocating for Education, Prevention, and Support

Brain Injury Awareness Month Graphic 2024March marks Brain Injury Awareness Month, dedicated to raising awareness about the prevalence, prevention, and management of brain injuries. 

According to the Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA), approximately 5.3 million Americans live with a permanent brain injury-related disability. This month serves as a platform to highlight the challenges faced by individuals and caregivers, stressing the importance of early intervention and ongoing support.

Ellen Werner, Director of ServiceNet’s Strive Clinic, emphasizes the uniqueness of each individual’s experience with brain injuries, stating, “If you’ve met one person with a brain injury, you’ve met one person with a brain injury. The injuries are as unique as the individual living with them.”

Throughout March, various organizations and individuals unite to foster awareness and provide vital information about brain injuries. On March 28, the Strive Clinic will host a day of recognition with the theme “My Journey,” inviting ServiceNet community members to participate in activities and displays showcasing firsthand accounts. Those interested in joining can contact Ellen Werner at [email protected] for more details.

“Brain Injury Awareness Month serves as a crucial reminder of the profound impact that brain injuries have on individuals and their families,” said Werner. “By increasing awareness and promoting education, prevention, and support initiatives, we can work together to improve outcomes for those affected.”
