“Take it from me, concussions are no joke.”

The contents of your head are precious: Your memories, your personality, the things that make you, you. Don’t let a brain injury put them at risk. If you hit your head, get it checked.

Give your head some respect

The pressure to not let your team down. The fear of appearing weak. Bad information from friends or the internet. This is why over half of people who think they have a concussion never seek medical care. If you or someone you know seriously hits or jolts their head, ditch the excuses. The advice is simple: Get it checked.

Be a Rebel. If you hit your head, get it checked.

“I do lots of adventurous things, but got a concussion from something totally boring– slipping on wet grass! When people hit their heads, there’s an expectation to blow it off and keep going. So I did something rebellious. I went to a doctor, got my head checked and got the treatment I needed.”
