Brain Injury Help Line: 1-800-242-0030

Welcome to BIA-MA

facesAccidents happen. Brain injury happens.
We can help!

In the blink of an eye, everything changes; nothing is as it was before. How will you identify brain injury if it happens to you or to someone you love? How will you cope with it? What resources will you need? Where will you find them? The Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts is here to help with information for brain injury survivors, family members, caregivers, professionals and others. To meet people whose lives have been impacted, visit "Faces of Brain Injury"

Registration is Open for the 2021 Cere-Bration - September 25, 2021

Last year’s Cere-Bration was such a huge success in awareness, fundraising, AND safety, that we’ve decided to keep it virtual again this year. You can Cere-Brate with us anywhere and any time you want, while supporting the brain injury community! Walk, run, or roll at your own pace; t-shirts are provided for each paid registration; and you are joining together in a supportive atmosphere to raise awareness, celebrate and remember.

BIA-MA is Offering Virtual Support Groups

BIA-MA remains committed to its mission during this time of social distancing. We are making a temporary transition of our brain injury support groups to virtual settings. The need to connect is strong, especially for brain injury survivors who may already feel isolated. 

Each virtual meeting will be facilitated by staff and a group leader using ZOOM video-conferencing. There is no cost to attend, and minimal information is requested from each attendee. You may participate using video or just the audio from your phone. Each meeting is hosted by an existing support group but is open to all. Click here to view our upcoming support groups and RSVP to attend!

Unmasking Brain Injury Project

walk & rollBIA-MA is pleased to announce our partnership with the Unmasking Brain Injury Project! Our goal is simple – offer every brain injury survivor the opportunity to create their own mask, tell their own story, and provide opportunities for the masks to be displayed in public places. Collectively this project partners with brain injury agencies across the country – and we are proud to join their ranks to illustrate brain injury and its impact. Follow along with us via social media and stay tuned for upcoming events where the masks will be on display. Interested in getting involved? Contact Cynthia Cardeli, Dir. Programs & Services, at 508-475-0032 or
