The Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut is Connecticut’s partner in brain injury prevention and recovery.
The following are some of the many initiatives sponsored by BIAC in support of brain injury survivors, their families, caregivers, professionals and the community:
Individual Consultation & Resources Brain injury specialists provide support and resources for more than 4,000 inquiries from survivors, caregivers and professionals each year to ensure that the often complex and overwhelming challenges they face are negotiated more easily and effectively. Contacts are made through BIAC’s toll-free HelpLine, email, social media and individual in-person consultations.
Outreach & Education Through its Prevention & Education Programs, BIAC works to increase awareness and understanding of brain injury and its prevention through school, professional and community presentations. BIAC’s Annual Conference is Connecticut’s premiere brain injury education program, drawing more than 275 professionals each year to learn the latest developments in the field.
Support Groups & Social Events BIAC sponsors numerous support groups throughout Connecticut that provide information, support and encouragement to survivors, their loved ones and caregivers, while offering social events and opportunities such as picnics and our Valentine’s Day Dance.
Legislative Advocacy BIAC advocates for legislation to improve the quality of life for people living with brain injuries while supporting initiatives that help to prevent brain injuries from occurring.
