Traumatic brain injury is the most misunderstood, misdiagnosed, underfunded public health problem our nation faces.

Unmasking Brain Injury

There is a worldwide initiative called "unmasking brain injury". Brain injury survivors try to paint/style a mask that depicts what they are going through. Then they write an explanation to go along with it. Once a year there will be an event where everyone at the same time wears and then takes off their masks. The masks are then displayed in a public space. The Unmasking Brain Injury website shows past masks and the stories that go along with them.
