March is Brain Injury Awareness Month. The theme for the 2015 to 2017 Awareness campaign is: Not Alone. The Not Alone campaign provides a platform for educating the general public about the incidence of brain injury in the United States and the needs of people with brain injuries and their families. The campaign also lends itself to outreach within the brain injury community to de-stigmatize the injury, empower those who have survived, and promote the many types of support that are available.
The Job Accommodation Network has released "Accommodations for Brain Injury in the Workplace," a JAN Just-In-Time training module, in conjunction with the national awareness campaign. This module will be helpful to employers, employees, family members, and others who are interested in technical assistance on the potential impact of a brain injury on an employees experience in the workplace. In particular, this module discusses how effective accommodations can be provided to help employees with brain injuries be more successful in the workplace.
