"I was suddenly unable to do the things I once enjoyed, struggling to come to terms with my injury, frustrated and angry”

Bob's life changed completely in 2013 when he fell two stories while shrink wrapping a boat at the marina where he worked. With the help of his family and BIA-MA,he has found ways to enjoy most of the things he used to, just a little differently.

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"


GiveBACK on #GIVINGTUESDAY

Join BIA-MA in GivingBack this year by donating items that will be distributed to Massachusetts shelters for domestic violence (DV).

One in four women and one in seven men have been victims of DV at the hands of a partner. Victims of DV may suffer a TBI without even knowing it. Approximately 81% of those who have been victims of domestic violence and have sought care, have suffered a head injury.

We hope to provide some comfort to those in need this time of year! Learn more


Unmasking Brain Injury Project

walk & rollBIA-MA is pleased to announce our partnership with the Unmasking Brain Injury Project! Our goal is simple – offer every brain injury survivor the opportunity to create their own mask, tell their own story, and provide opportunities for the masks to be displayed in public places. Collectively this project partners with brain injury agencies across the country – and we are proud to join their ranks to illustrate brain injury and its impact. Follow along with us via social media and stay tuned for upcoming events where the masks will be on display. Interested in getting involved? Contact Cynthia Cardeli, Dir. Programs & Services, at 508-475-0032 or ccardeli@biama.org
