Brain Safety Starts With YOU!

Brain safety for kids is essential, and it starts with YOU!

Whether you’re a parent, coach, healthcare provider, or school professional, it’s important to have the right tools to prevent brain injuries, including concussions. Looking for a way to bring brain injury and concussion safety to your community? Help spread the message during Brain Injury Awareness Month!

Why Brain Safety Awareness?
Brain safety is an important to understand—both on and off the sports field. A child’s brain is still developing, so they are at increased risk for injury and can take longer to recover. Taking safety steps to prevent an injury and knowing how to respond if one occurs can make all the difference in a child’s future.

That’s why we’re putting the spotlight on brain safety during Brain Injury Awareness Month. And we want you to be a part of it!
