Brain Injury

Connecticut's Partner in Brain Injury Prevention and Recovery

Since incorporation in 1982, the Brain Injury Alliance of Connecticut (BIAC) has grown to become Connecticut’s only statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the impact of brain injury. BIAC’s primary mission is to be Connecticut’s partner in brain injury prevention and recovery. Our mission is reached through two complimentary areas of services: On a community level, BIAC reaches over 6,000 children and adults each year through school, professional and community educational presentations about the nature of brain injury and its signs, symptoms and prevention. BIAC also functions as a brain injury resource for state and professional organizations aiding them with specific cases and creating internal systems changes to benefit the brain injury survivors they serve. Additionally, BIAC initiates and supports legislation focused on the prevention of brain injury and the well-being of survivors, including the Connecticut Senate Bill 456, passed in 2010, regarding young athletes and concussion. On an individual level, BIAC provides a free HelpLine operated by Masters-level brain injury specialists who respond to between 2,000 and 3,000 annual requests for guidance and information regarding brain injury. We also coordinate 27 support groups throughout Connecticut.
