Brain Injury Alliance of Utah
The Brain Injury Alliance of Utah is a local organization bringing hope, help, and healing to people who have suffered a brain injury and their families. Each year more than 20,000 Utahns need medical treatment as the result of a traumatic brain injury. Thousands more suffer brain injury from strokes, tumors, and infectious diseases. They must live with lasting challenges resulting from the harm.
The Brain Injury Alliance of Utah provides a number of things to help survivors. They offer individualized counseling to help identify challenges, establish goals, and access community resources to support their return to work, school, and community life.
They sponsor support groups as well as conduct an annual Family and Professionals Conference for survivors, family members, and professionals. Finally, they educate school children about injury prevention and promote the message through the sale of bike helmets for only $5. You can learn more at their website www.biau.org.
SelectHealth recognizes the supportive resources provided by the Brain Injury Alliance of Utah as another example of how Utah Gives Back.
