prevention of TBI through advocacy, research, grants, support groups, lectures that integrate
into more community awareness and help.

The signs and symptoms of a brain injury can be subtle. These may not appear
until days or
weeks following the injury or may be missed as people may look fine even though they may
act or feel differently. No one can predict how much someone will recover from brain injury.
Although science still has much to learn about how to reverse damage from head injuries,
today more than ever therapies are available. Prevention is the only cure!
What is Traumatic Brain Injury?
Teach Me - Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad spectrum of
symptoms and disabilities. The impact on a person and his or her family
can be devastating. A blow or jolt to the head can result in a traumatic
brain injury (TBI), which can disrupt the function of the brain. The
seriousness of such an injury may range from mild to severe.
Brain Injury Awareness:
What causes TBI?
The leading causes of TBI are motor vehicle traffic, falls and assaults.
The only cure for brain injury is Prevention!
There are more annual incidences of brain injury than multiple sclerosis,
spinal chord injuries, HIV/Aids, and breast cancer put together. Currently
5.3 million Americans live with brain injuries. Montana is currently
second in the nation per capita incidence of Brain Injury, from mild
(concussion) to severe (traumatic). Brain Injury is the “Silent Epedemic”
and Prevention the only cure!
