THE BRAIN INJURY ASSOCIATION OF MARYLAND - WE ARE

…a group of individuals and organizations dedicated to improving the lives and futures of Marylanders affected by brain injury. Since being founded by a small group of family members of individuals with brain injury in 1983, we have grown to become the premier source of information, education, advocacy, and hope for the brain injured community in Maryland. 

Today, membership includes brain injury survivors, dedicated family members, business people,  and professionals from every healthcare field helping us bring help and hope to the citizens of Maryland.

Our Mission...

...is to create a better future through brain injury prevention, education, advocacy, and promotion of research.

We Believe…

…brain injuries affect individuals of all ages and backgrounds. The devastating consequences of a brain injury last a lifetime. Individuals and families need support, information and access to a range of treatment and rehabilitative resources. The work of the Brain Injury Association of Maryland is not only to help reduce the incidence of brain injury through education and increased public awareness, but also to help improve the treatment of brain injury through promoting research and sound public policy.
