The brain is at the very core of what it means to be human. We rely on it for every operation of the mind and body, both voluntary and involuntary, every moment of every day. Our brain is what allows us to connect with other people, to work, to feel love and compassion, and to make sense of the complex world around us.
That’s what makes brain injuries so devastating. A significant brain injury doesn’t just upset a person’s physical health, it also affects their psychological, social, and even spiritual health, sometimes for the rest of their lives.
Approximately 2 million Americans sustain a traumatic brain injury each year, resulting in over 50,000 deaths and 250,000 hospitalizations. Millions more suffer from mild traumatic brain trauma (mTBI), often without ever being diagnosed or treated. This often leads to physical and cognitive impairments that can last for years or forever.
