Use Your Mind to Protect Your Body

Traumatic brain and spinal cord injury is a leading cause of disability and death among children and young adults. Many of these injuries are preventable. 


That's where ThinkFirst comes in. 


ThinkFirst seeks to educate people of all ages, communities, organizations and policymakers about risky behavior and injury, with the aim of changing behavior.

Why Is Injury Prevention Our Focus?

Each year, more than 500,000 traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries occur in the United States.


The most common cause of such injuries is motor vehicle crashes, followed by violence, falls and sports. A split second of action can have devastating consequences.


We are here to help you think before you act, so you avoid the pain and loss related to preventable injuries.
