BRAIN HEALTH | 3.20.2017 | BY ABBIE ELDRIGE, MS, CCC-SLP
As we pass the midpoint of Brain Injury Awareness Month, we can reflect on what has been done to bring attention and recognition to brain injury thus far, and look forward to what else can be done toward this endeavor. Whether you are someone who has experienced a brain injury or someone who is just learning about this important topic, we all have the opportunity to develop our own awareness of TBI, and have a powerful role in building the social consciousness around its impact.
In recognition of this special month, let us give attention to those most impacted, as we offer:
Gratitude to healthcare providers, support groups, researchers and brain health advocates
Appreciation and Support to family, friends, caregivers and support systems for those with TBI
Celebration, Encouragement and Hope to people who have experienced a brain injury and are working everyday to grow, learn, accept, persist, connect and thrive
LOVE to all of those affected by brain injury, as you pursue and promote compassion, connection and potential
