Currently, more than 3.1 million children and adults in the U.S. live with a lifelong disability as a result of TBI and 6.4 million have a disability due to stroke. (CDC, 2010) Each year, 2 million people in the U.S. acquire a brain injury from an external blow to the head or an internal event, such as a heart attack, stroke or tumor. The injury can temporarily or permanently disrupt brain function—changing who we are and how we think, act, feel and ultimately survive and live.

More than 150,000 people in Indiana live with a lifelong disability as a result of brain injury. With more than 6,100 Hoosiers sustaining brain injuries of varying degrees each year.

Brain injury knows no age, racial, educational or socioeconomic boundaries and can result from a wide variety of causes, including sports, physical abuse, motor vehicle crashes, falls, strokes among others

Our Mission

The Brain Injury Association of Indiana is a nonprofit 501 c (3) service organization dedicated to reducing the incidence and impact of brain injury through education, advocacy, support, prevention and by facilitating inter-agency commitment and collaboration.
