Welcome to BIA-MA

facesAccidents happen. Brain injury happens.
We can help!

In the blink of an eye, everything changes; nothing is as it was before. How will you identify brain injury if it happens to you or to someone you love? How will you cope with it? What resources will you need? Where will you find them? The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts is here to help with information for brain injury survivors, family members, caregivers, professionals and others. To meet people whose lives have been impacted, visit "Faces of Brain Injury"
