March is Brain Injury Awareness Month!
This year presented a great opportunity to help educate leaders in the community about brain injury by sharing lived experience with brain injury and stroke, treatments gaps, challenges and opportunities at the National Association of Social Workers Conference.
B.I.G Members Javier Gil, A.C.S.W ; L.C.S.W and
Dr. Victoria Newman, D.Div, PHD, RMT are more than their brain injuries and have teamed up to tell their own stories to Social Workers, Case Managers, Administrators, Counselors and Therapists to bring awareness to gaps from a clinical and systems navigation perspective.
"Too often, brain injuries and survivors are ignored. During Brain Injury Awareness Month, we encourage you to share your story to show others that they are not alone."
