Brain Injury Association Hawaii Advocacy & Awareness
Brain Injury Association of Hawaii
The Brain Injury Association of Hawaii (BIA-HI) is dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons with brain injury and the families of such persons in Hawaii and other areas of the Pacific Basin.
Through our affiliation with the Brain Injury Association of America, the Brain Injury Association of Hawaii works to promote the rights of individuals experiencing disability caused by brain injury, to increase public awareness of brain injury, to provide education, information, resources, and support for individuals who have sustained a brain injury and for their families, to advocate on behalf of individuals who have sustained a brain injury, and to promote prevention of brain injuries in our community.
- Every 13 seconds, one person in the U.S. sustains a brain injury.
- Approximately 2.8 million Americans sustain brain injuries each year
- At least 10,000 Hawaiians suffer brain injuries annually
Help begins with support from people who understand. The Brain Injury Association of Hawaii is there to support survivors of brain injury and their family and friends. BIA-HI has support groups in various locations across the state which meet to allow survivors and their loved ones an opportunity to share in the coping process. BIA-HI also has regular educational meetings and volunteers who can answer questions and provide information regarding resources available in Hawaii.
Since 1987, when survivors and family members of survivors of brain injury formed the Hawaii Head Injury Association - later becoming the Brain Injury Association of Hawaii – we have been dedicated to improving the quality of life for survivors of brain injury and their families.
