BIA-MA Events & Activities

BIA-MA has professional staff that provide information, resources, support, and informal counseling to individuals with brain injuries, families, and professionals across the state. BIA-MA's events provide survivors and their loved ones a forum for sharing information and an opportunity to socialize and make new friends.

The Journey – Healing Through Self-Expression

Join us for a series of inspiring presentations designed to help you explore the many ways of sharing your lived experience with brain injury. Each week, you are invited to join fellow survivors who will share their personal experiences using many different forms of self-expression.  We will explore using the arts, such as painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, pottery, music, the written word, hand crafting, sewing and more, to express our inner selves and support us on the journey toward living well. 

The series will be ongoing and will run from September 14, 2020 through June 29, 2021. There will be a different presentation each week. Grab a cup of tea, coffee, or water, settle in for an enjoyable hour with kindred spirits and BE INSPIRED! 

To participate in The Journey, please send an email to We will respond individually with access codes and directions.

Brain injury can have a traumatic effect on both survivors and their families.

Recreation activities are sponsored in part by the Statewide Head Injury Program, Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission. RSVP required for all events. Limited spaces available. Activities will take place online using video teleconferencing.  These are private brain injury groups, not open to the general public.
