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.

“Just like my friends here, the Melon Family, I know a thing or two about concussions. True story, I got one doing something really boring– slipping on grass! But then I did something rebellious. I didn’t blow it off, I got my melon checked. Hear my story and learn how we all can make a difference.” – Rebel Wilson
