Brain injury changes lives and affects families. The Brain Injury Association of North Carolina wants to help you find the resources you need. We have 5 Brain Injury Resource Centers in NC to serve you. Brain injuries can occur in countless ways; they may be the result of a fall, a stroke, a car accident, or an IED blast, among many other things. Brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. Brain injury affects 5 times more people annually than breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, spinal cord injury, and MS combined.
Sports and recreational concussions have increased by 60% in the last decade. Youth sport coaching staffs would benefit from more information about concussion prevention and post-concussion care. Specialized training would better equip our schools’ faculties to appropriately serve children with a brain injury in the classroom.
There is a significant increase of brain injury among returning military service members who will require long-term care in North Carolina communities. Military families may not qualify for Veterans’ services, and need a great deal of training and support.
Brain injury is a growing major public health concern from both a financial and a social perspective, which is not addressed in our current health care system.
