"I was suddenly unable to do the things I once injoyed, 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.

MARCH IS BRAIN INJURY AWARENESS MONTH!!

Change Your MindOver 107,000 children and adults sustain a brain injury in Massachusetts each year. We need YOUR help in raising important awareness about this silent epidemic. The #ChangeYourMind campaign provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. The campaign also lends itself to outreach within the brain injury community to de-stigmatize the injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the many types of support that are available.

HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING THIS MONTH:

HERE'S HOW TO GET INVOLVED:

Follow BIA-MA's social media Facebook and Twitter channels for the latest content throughout Brain Injury Awareness Month.

Don’t forget to share, comment, and like all our posts on Facebook and Twitter.

Tag us in your own posts. And add the campaign hashtag, #ChangeYourMind, to your social media posts. You’ll be entered to win a Change Your Mind t-shirt – the more posts you make, the more opportunity to win! (A hashtag consists of a number sign added at the beginning of a word to form a label. It is used to view and track similarly tagged messages on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.)

Add the #ChangeYourMind Facebook Frame to your profile picture. This special frame will only be available during March to promote Brain Injury Awareness Month. To add a frame to your profile picture:

    1. Go to www.facebook.com/profilepicframes
