Traumatic Brain Injury - You Are Not Alone

Per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), "Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health problem in the United States." The CDC has documented that each year nearly 1.7 million people sustain traumatic brain injuries which may then contribute to death or permanent disability.

There are many organizations both nationwide and in each state established to help brain injury survivors and their families cope with the serious after-effects of traumatic brain injury.

Obtaining a proper diagnosis and medical treatment through consultations with expert physicians and neuropsychologists in the area of traumatic brain injury is essential. The support of these organizations and support groups is paramount to both the victims of traumatic brain injuries and their families in reaching the best recovery possible.

All of these organizations have a wealth of information regarding traumatic brain injury and are able to offer support and healing to victims and their families.

In Rhode Island - Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island (BIARI) - www.biausa.org/RI/.

In Massachusetts - Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts (BIAMA) - www.biama.org/.

Nationwide - the affiliated National Association of Brain Injury Association of America - www.biausa.org .

In addition, there is another national and governmental association at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention known as CDC-Traumatic Brain Injury-Injury Center - www.cdc.gov/traumaticbraininjury/ .

The Brain Injury Association of America has affiliations in each state including the Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island and the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts.
