A brain injury can happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone. Brain Injuries do not discriminate. An injury that happens in an instant can bring a lifetime of physical, cognitive and behavior challenges and early, equal adequate access to care will greatly increase overall quality of life. Georgia has over 50,000 suspected traumatic brain injuries reported each year through the Central Registry, yet brain injury remains largely silent and unseen. These numbers do not include our military veterans or acquired brain injuries from strokes, tumors, brain bleeds, or other causes.
Caregiver and Survivor Resources
Links, books, articles, and contacts to provide the support you or your loved one needs. Taking care of someone else is never easy, but there are many resources available to assist in these adjustments and to remember that you, the caregiver, matter too.
Our state wide volunteer-administered support groups provide an opportunity for those individuals and family members affected by brain injury not only to learn more about brain injury but to be present in a safe and encouraging venue to discuss the challenges they face.
You can make a difference. Your time and expertise is sorely needed. Want to know how to become a supporter or volunteer? Subscribing to our email list to stay up to date on upcoming events and volunteer opportunities can be essential in your involvement. Here is how to help.
