Brain Injury Awareness Month - March 2015

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month by conducting an awareness campaign in March each year. The theme for the 2015 to 2017 campaign is: Not Alone.

The Not Alone campaign provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. The campaign also lends itself to outreach within the brain injury community to de-stigmatize the injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the many types of support that are available.

Below are links materials BIAA Affiliates can use to promote brain injury awareness in your community.

BIAA State Advocacy Toolkit

The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) and the BIAA Business Council have assembled this toolkit to assist state level advocates in advancing access to and coverage of brain injury (BI) treatment, rehabilitation, and related services. With implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), there are annual opportunities to raise awareness of the importance of BI services and to enhance coverage of these services under private insurance and Medicaid programs. 

This toolkit is intended to serve as an aid, a resource, to state level advocates, both seasoned and new to the world of advocacy. If you are an advocate, or are considering advocacy for the first time, this toolkit will provide you with step-by-step instructions for how to make the greatest impact in your state through BI-focused advocacy.
