March is Brain Injury Awareness Month: #ThinkAhead #BIAmonth

 

Brain Injury Awareness month happens every March, reminding us to be aware of those affected by traumatic brain injury. During this month, we are helping to raise awareness about the causes of TBI, how to prevent these injuries, and what you can do to help the recovery process.


THINK AHEAD ABOUT TBI

Be safe: Think Ahead and learn the common causes of TBI, so you can take steps to prevent TBI during everyday activities, at work, while playing sports, or during a deployment. To learn more about preventing TBI, check out these safety tips and fact sheets that address what safety measures you should take before getting on a bicycle or motorcycle, driving and playing sports.

Know the signs: Concussion, also known as mild TBI, often goes undetected or undiagnosed initially because the symptoms can be subtle and varied. Think Ahead to recognize mild TBI by learning common signs and symptoms.

Get help: If you think you, or someone else you know, has a TBI, please Think Ahead and seek medical help as quickly as possible to improve chances of a full and complete recovery.
