The Brain Injury Association of Louisiana (BIALA) is a statewide 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on creating a better future for Louisiana citizens with brain injury and/or spinal cord injury through education, community support groups, obtaining services, and advocacy.
Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals impacted by brain injury and/or spinal cord injury and to advance brain and spinal cord injury prevention, treatment, support and education.
Annual Conference - Each year BIALA hosts a conference to bring together survivors, caregivers, families, vendors, and professionals throughout the state. We bring in speakers to discuss the latest technologies, therapeutic practices, and survivor stories. Visit our Annual Conference page to learn about our 2015 Conference!

We regularly attend support groups to assess the community's needs, and to provide them with the latest resources.
