Welcome to the Brain Injury Association of Missouri

News and Announcements


March is Brain Injury Awareness Month


Brain Injury Fact of the Day

Rural Missourians are older than urban Missourians, with falls being the leading cause of brain injury among individuals 65 years and older. Therefore, farmers are at high risk of sustaining a brain injury that may affect balance, vision, memory, problem solving, fatigue and more. Brain injury can go untreated if there are no visible signs of the injury, such as a fall.




Traumatic Brain Injury Needs Assessment Survey

The state of Missouri needs your help and input to develop a Missouri Five Year Plan to improve services and support for individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and their families. Your participation and feedback is very important and greatly appreciated! 

Please complete the survey that is most relevant to you – as a Professional or Survivor. Please then share the below links with professionals, survivors of brain injury, and family members you work with or know personally. Thank you for your time in completing this important survey.
