What is Brain Injury?
Brain injuries are complex and come with many unanticipated consequences. They can range from mild injuries that only require some rest and monitoring, to serious injuries that can result in permanent disability or death.
Every brain injury is different and just a fraction of an inch can make such a difference in your outcome. The kind of support, resources, and activities that BIAMI provides make a world of difference for survivors like me.Kathy M.,
