Welcome to the Brain Injury Association of Michigan

A brain injury is a sudden event that can change a life. Whether it’s a mild injury that simply requires rest and monitoring or a serious traumatic injury that can result in serious permanent disabilities, traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are physical injuries to the brain that require expert, specialized assessment and treatment to ensure the best long-term outcome. The Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) is here to help. We provide education, advocacy, research opportunities, support and support groups to brain injury survivors their families, and the people who serve them. Prevention information is provided in communities across Michigan.

The BIAMI is a non-profit organization that brings together people with brain injury, their families, friends and concerned professionals to improve the quality of life that people experience after brain injury.

Thirty years ago, a group of concerned families living with brain injuries founded the BIAMI to ensure that services and support were available for people with brain injuries and their families. Incorporated in 1981, the BIAMI was one of the first state associations chartered by the Brain Injury Association of America. Today, thanks to Michigan’s system of automotive no-fault insurance and other factors, our state is fortunate to have one of the country’s largest and most comprehensive statewide networks of research, treatment and support services for people with brain injuries and their families.

Today, the BIAMI’s services are needed more than ever before as military service members return to our communities with brain injuries suffered in the defense of our country. TBIs from roadside bombs and other causes have become the “signature injury” of Iraq, Afghanistan and other present-day conflicts.

Our Mission

The mission of the Brain Injury Association of Michigan (BIAMI) is to improve the lives of those affected by brain injury and to reduce the incidence and impact of brain injury through education, advocacy, support, treatment services, and research.

Our Long Term Vision

Everyone affected by brain injury will have immediate and equal access to services and support to help lead full and meaningful lives.

Financial Transparency

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Brain Injury Association of Michigan seeks to be transparent in its financial operations by making our Annual Reports, IRS Form 990 and Audited Financial Statements publicly available. Our financial information is available for review on Guidestar.  Guidestar's mission is to revolutionize philanthropy and nonprofit practice by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving.
