Brain Injury Awareness



March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and this week is also Brain Awareness Week. An estimated 1.7 million sustain a traumatic brain injury annually. Of the 1.7 million, 52,000 die, 275,000 are hospitalized and 1.365 million are treated and released from an emergency room. About 75% of the brain injuries that occur each year are due to concussions.
There are short-term and long-lasting affects from brain injury and Brain Injury Awareness Month focuses on destigmatizing brain injury and empowering those who have had survived a brain injury through support. In fact there are over 680 events over the course of Brain Awareness Week to help educate people with Brain Injury (dana.org/baw/calendar).
In addition, during Brain Awareness Week, there is a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research. Educate yourself with a self-guided tour of the human brain on
BrainFacts.org (bit.ly/3DBrainTour) or learn a bit about the current research ongoing at MIT at the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT (http://mcgovern.mit.edu/).
Life after a traumatic brain injury can be difficult, but NTI has helped many on SSI or SSDI get back into the workplace once again when they are ready. If you would like to explore the services NTI has to offer, visit our website at goo.gl/6kSi13. Maybe we can make a difference in your life or someone you love?

  4. On average, there are 350,000 traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) each year in the United States. You need to check this Rotorua Tree Services and get more tips about tree removal. That is both frightening and sobering at the same time. While that number isn't something to brush off as "just regular brain injuries", it's important to understand why you should be aware of Brain Injury Awareness and support.
