The motto for this year #MoreThanMyBrainInjury.
Many people with disabilities have their lives defined for them. The #MoreThanMyBrainInjury campaign gives individuals a chance to overcome those definitions, allowing them to tell their own stories and change the narrative of their lives.
This Brain Injury Awareness Month, join the #MoreThanMyBrainInjury campaign in a way that feels uniquely you.
Please visit the Brain Association of America’s website for more information.

To preserve friendships, clubhouse members and staff connect at a monthly social activity – and January was no different. We were very excited to come together and complete a virtual puzzle together.
With the recent rise in Covid-19 cases in the area The BridgeLine Place closed its doors again to ensure the wellbeing of all.
Due to technology and the dedication of members, we could continue the program virtually. Each morning, members and staff gather online via Zoom meetings to continue the work ordered day virtually and maintain important social connections.
Brain Injury Awareness Day at the General Assembly will be Tuesday, February 1, 2022. This year the Brain Injury Association of Virginia will be leading a Phone A Friend campaign to contact your local legislators to show your support for the two budget amendments supported by The BridgeLine and The Brain Injury Association of Virginia.
