BIAOH OFFERS A TBI SURVIVOR CARD

Brain injuries may have long-lasting or even life-long effects.  Individuals who have survived a brain injury and are managing their symptoms sometimes need assistance when communicating with someone who is not familiar with brain injuries.  BIAOH is here to help by offering a Brain Injury Survivor Card!  This card may be used by any brain injury survivor to help others understand the symptoms of a brain injury and effective ways of interacting with our survivors.  If you would like a Survivor Card, please contact our Helpline by calling (614) 481-7100 or by emailing help@biaoh.org.
