On March 18, 2010 BRAININJURYFORUM.com celebrates its first year online! Today we pause to reflect on what we have accomplished, how far we’ve come and imagine how far we can go.
BRAININJURYFORUM.com is a free on-line forum and blog created to help advance awareness while increasing the understanding of brain injury, its many challenges, its invisibility in most communities and how disabling one can be. Our virtual community was created by survivors, family members, and advocates, for survivors, family members and advocates and be a place where anyone can connect with like-minded others who have come before them and may be another source of support to one another.
Understanding the Impact of a Brain Injury. When such an incident occurs, it can turn lives upside down. Here is where support and information is invaluable when faced with caring for and understanding a loved one that has sustained a brain injury. Often families navigate the many challenges and uncertainties of this life altering injury with little to no support and/or reference.
Our forum has six (6) focus categories, they are: Brain Injury, Family, Press Releases, Rehabilitation, Children & Brain Injury and lastly Prevention & Awareness. Once inside a specific section it further breaks down into various related posts. With over 200 members that span 4 continents, a 148 plus topics and 372 posts we have only begun to stretch our wings. The forum is also complimented with a calendar for sharing various brain injury related events locally and globally.
Along with the value that each member’s contribution has provided, we collectively share an equally important purpose; Advancing Brain Injury Awareness, Understanding and People Supporting People. It may be what we are working towards, but more importantly, it’s those who have been moved to action is what we are also observing today. As we enjoy this milestone, it is with our deepest appreciation that we thank everyone who has made and continues to make our virtual community possible.
