Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month

March is National Traumatic Brain Injury Awareness Month. TBI can occur as a result of physical abuse or assault, such as causing a fall, being shoved, being struck by an object, or from gunshots near the head. Another cause of TBI is strangulation, one of the most lethal forms of DV. It’s possible to show no symptoms at first but die weeks later due to lack of oxygen and other internal injuries.
