Some facts about Brain Injury


  • Brain injury includes stroke, concussions, aneurysms, tumors and traumatic force, such as a car accident.

  • 2.5 million individuals suffer brain injury each year. Of that 2.5 million, a large percentage are disabled for life.

  • After brain injury, individuals are 11 times more likely to use alcohol and drugs to self medicate.

  • Research shows increased rates of depression and suicide attempts following brain injury. Four times more likely to die by suicide as quoted by the CDC.


No two brain injuries are alike. There are a lot of similarities but there is a quote that states, "If you have seen one brain injury, you have seen one brain injury."

Testimonials

 

Katie-

"A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain." Tuesday, July 11th 2017, was the night that changed my life forever. 
Originally in the hospital I honestly did not like group therapy. I got easily distracted and therapy was easier when I could focus solely on just that. However, as seasons of my life have continued to change, during my outpatient therapy, I was introduced to a brain injury support group called Heads or Tails. This group has helped me in learning new strategies that other survivors have utilized in their recovery. I have met an abundance of new people.
It's interesting to observe how every human is different, especially anatomically. I've even been blessed to hear others attest to what strategies they utilize that I did not learn in therapy.
The group has blessed me with eye opening revelations, as well as needed opportunities to express myself, both verbally and through activities. 
I have developed a sense of comfort with the other survivors and those involved in the group.
This group has been amazing. 
I definitely recommend the Heads or Tails support group. It reveals to you that you are not alone, that there are others who have experienced similar, yet different injuries.
