As a professional who works with individuals with brain injuries, I have found the services provided by BIAT to be invaluable to this population. They work not only with individuals with brain injuries but the entire families to provide the support and education that they so desparately need.

The Brain Injury Association of TN plays a key role in assisting individuals with brain injury and their familes to find educational resources and services to allow the individual with a brain injury to reach their maximum potential. The staff are professional and knowledgeable. The staff return calls in a timely manner and work to change the lives of individuals with brain injury on a shoe string of a budget. With more Veterans returning from the war with a traumatic brain injury from explosive devices, it is more important than ever that this program receive additional funding.

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a serious public health problem in the United States. Each year, traumatic brain injuries contribute to a substantial number of deaths and cases of permanent disability. Recent data shows that, on average, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury annually.

A TBI is caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or a penetrating head injury that disrupts the normal function of the brain. Not all blows or jolts to the head result in a TBI. The severity of a TBI may range from “mild,” i.e., a brief change in mental status or consciousness to “severe,” i.e., an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury. The majority of TBIs that occur each year are concussions or other forms of mild TBI.

Thanks for your consideration of awarding this money to a very worthy cause and organization.

I have worked with BIAT just recently since switching to the Trauma Unit at Vanderbilt. They were available when contacted, and provide resources to our families who are dealing with family members affected by TBI. I am appreciative of the services and support they provide to by TBI patients and families.

The Brain Injury Association of Tennessee has been an invaluable resource for our brain injured patients here at Baptist Rehabilitation! From written materials to providing workshops, they have "answered the call" when needed! Brain injury is so variable from survivor to survivor it is always challenging to provide support to families and the BIAT has been able to help us, help families from around the midsouth area.

A wonderul organiziation that spearheads the outpatient care of those with traumatic brain injury for the state of TN. Long after the in-hospital phase of TBI care is completed, there is a long road for recovery, which involves the integration and support of families, schools, and allied health professionals. This organization not only assists in this integration, but also provides awareness for the community and families afflicted.

The BIA of TN offers hope and support to people with brain injury, families and professionals. I have referred people to contact the BIA of TN because they understand brain injury, which is hard to find, and they work to connect people with resources. There is no one else helping people with brain injury like this, and the need is so great.
