The Brain Injury Association of America (BIAA) leads the nation in observing Brain Injury Awareness Month by conducting an awareness campaign in March each year. The theme for the 2018 to 2020 campaign is Change Your Mind.

#ChangeYourMind

This week and all throughout March, the United Brain Association hugs the leaders behind the #ChangeYourMind campaign, which 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.  Through their efforts, they are seeking to reach out to those 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.

Try This “Handy” Brain Exercise

Using your opposite hand will strengthen neural connections in your brain, and even grow new ones. It’s similar to how physical exercise improves your body’s functioning and grows muscles. Try using your non-dominant hand to write, eat, brush your hair… Did You Feel The Cogs In Your Brain Working Harder?
