Spreading Inspiration through #ConcussionHope
For someone recovering from a concussion, maintaining hope is essential. Concussion recovery is not linear, and setbacks are common, but progress is always possible. We launched our #ConcussionHope series to spread positivity, inspiration and helpful advice for those battling concussion symptoms.
Each Monday, we post a new Hope video on our Twitter (@ConcussionLF) and Instagram (@concussionfoundation) pages. Be sure to follow us so you never miss a Hope video and scroll below to see the #ConcussionHope videos from advocates all around the world!

Hope helps us keep going through our toughest challenges. Hope is the belief that there can be a better future, and it inspires us to take action. Hope helps reduce depression and improve mental health.
Hope is a crucial component of recovery for people struggling with symptoms of concussion and Post-Concussion Syndrome (PCS). Hope can also be contagious. Our #ConcussionHope campaign provides members of the brain injury community with messages of hope, inspiration, support, and helpful tips from people who have recovered or are currently recovering from a concussion. Each Monday, we post a new Hope video to our Instagram (@concussionfoundation) and Twitter (@ConcussionLF) pages. Follow us there to never miss a new video!
