Mission

Our mission is to provide Hope, Help, and Support to the citizens of Georgia who have sustained or have been affected by brain injury.

BIAG dedicated to increasing access to quality health care, raising awareness and understanding of brain injury through Prevention, Education and Advocacy. Together with its network of affiliates as well as support groups throughout the State of Georgia, BIAG is the “VOICE OF BRAIN INJURY” in Georgia for individuals, their families and the professionals who serve them.

Support

Our Information and Resource Program is directed by a Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) who provides expertise with information, education and custom resources specific to your situation. CBIS work 1:1 with individuals, families and health care professionals.

The Brain Injury Association of Georgia also offers a number of support groups throughout Georgia for survivors, families and friends.  It is a member of VSA Arts of Georgia, a nonprofit program that provides access to the arts.  Our BIAG Camp Program is being offered for adult survivors of TBI and their caregivers as well.

Our Peer Visitor for Veterans Program is staffed with volunteers who provide hope, support, empathy, inspiration, education and resources that are key to helping survivors of an injury to the brain and their families navigate the long recovery process.

Education

Our organization offers education for survivors, family members and professionals. Our information and resource helpline, support groups, peer visitor for veteran programs, and online resources offer resources for survivors and their family members. Keep an eye on the Calendar of Events sections because the Brain Injury Association of Georgia offers various seminars throughout the year.

Advocacy

We mobilize volunteers, lobbyists, support groups and special interest groups to partner with Brain Injury Association of Georgia in actively advocating for legislation affecting the disability community.

We utilize our website to inform users and supporters of time-sensitive issues and to provide “how-to” instructions for participation.
