Brain Awareness Brain Health Community Outreach

Making Headway Center works with local schools to educate students and faculty about brain injury prevention. This may include presentations, helmet fittings, advice on maintaining a proper fit and on occasion, giving away helmets to those in genuine need. School visits occur when MHC staff is available. Safety presentations and helmet checks and fittings may also take place at public events such as the City of Eureka’s Annual Get Out and Play Day (GOPD). Presentations are also made at local events and to nonprofit organizations in the community. Making Headway Center recognizes that prevention is the most cost-effective, painless and, in fact, only sure way to reduce the number of brain injuries in our community. We predominantly serve Humboldt County, with media coverage in Trinity, Mendocino and Del Norte counties, in far northwestern California. We serve a large, rural geographical area with a small population, though we have a disproportionate number of our population living with brain and/or other debilitating injuries.
