The Brain Injury Association of Tennessee is committed to making our state a place where survivors and their families feel supported throughout their journey of recovery.
This includes advocating for laws that encourage public safety and protecting and supporting individuals with disabilities. One of the greatest challenges faced by TBI survivors and their families are service gaps, in which a needed resource is not available locally, or they lack the financial resources due to a gap in the system. Our dream is to ensure every survivor and every family has access to the care and rehabilitation they need, regardless of financial status. We work to achieve this through legislative advocacy and pinpointing gaps where communities and governments can collaborate to improve resources available for survivors.
