A SILENT EPIDEMIC
Brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time. More than 5 million Americans alive today have had a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) resulting in a permanent need for help in performing daily activities. However, most people don't realize how a brain injury, even from a minor blow to the head, can impact their behavior or ability to function. Brain injury affects 5 times more people annually than breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, spinal cord injury, and Multiple Sclerosis combined.
In North Carolina, Traumatic Brain Injury is considered a Developmental Disability and Trillium can assist you to find the services you need. Call us at 1-877-685-2514.
