Educating others about TBIThe short and long term impacts of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can affect both the individual who experienced the injury, their family members, and friends. Often people who have suffered a TBI do not know where to start when it comes to educating the people they love. There are many ways to begin to help those around you understand what a TBI is and what the potential long-term consequences may be.

Provide Reputable Resources

One of the best ways to provide information and increase awareness about TBI’s is to provide those closest to you with highly reputable resources. These resources could include medical journal articles, medical information websites, and articles on non-profit websites like TryMunity.

Speak out Using Social Media

Social Media can be an excellent tool to provide awareness about TBI’s! Using social media will allow you to provide information about TBI’s to individuals who may have never researched them on their own. You may be surprised by the number of people within your social media community who have personally been impacted by a TBI.

Ask the Expert

Your Doctor or a TBI specialist may be an excellent resource for helping you to identify education and awareness needs within your community. They can help to identify gaps in your community’s knowledge or local events that provide education on TBI’s and their long-term impacts.

Ready. Set. Go!

There are so many ways to encourage the education and awareness of TBI’s within your local community and among your friends and family. The steps above represent a starting point for you to begin your education and awareness work.
