The Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council

Note: The Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council has replaced the Traumatic Brain Injury Advisory Council.

The Texas Brain Injury Advisory Council (TBIAC) addresses strategic planning, policy, rules and services related to preventing brain injury and providing rehabilitation and long-term services and supports for people who have survived brain injuries to improve their quality of life and ability to function independently in the home and community.

The TBIAC seeks input from brain injury survivors, family members and caregivers, and professionals. The Council is focused on reducing risks, promoting prevention and using effective disease management to reduce the incidence and prevalence of brain injuries. The Council also strives to make it possible for people who have survived a brain injury to achieve and maintain a high quality of life by accessing the services and supports they need as they heal, and return to their homes and communities.
