The Protect Your Brain high school toolkit for school professionals will help you prepare and deliver a presentation on brain injury prevention for high school students. It is intended to be used by teachers, school nurses, interested school professionals, and prevention partners to educate Connecticut teens on the importance of protecting their brain and how they can prevent brain injury. The presentations can be given in a variety of settings, from assemblies to classroom discussions, and through PowerPoint presentations that include an interactive game component or activities in small groups. There are a variety of options available in the toolkit, including PowerPoint presentations, reading assignments, classroom discussions, small group discussions, videos and a Jeopardy style game. We encourage you to use the toolkit to fit your needs. The presentations can be presented through modules, and conducted in conjunction with relevant safety awareness days and months. You know your students and school best, so we have provided a variety of ways to include this information in your school.
The Protect Your Brain toolkit was developed with the generous support of the Savings Bank of Manchester's Charitable Foundation, Inc. through a We're Pulling For You grant.

The toolkit covers topics including functions of the brain, effects of brain injury, incidence of brain injury in teens, and strategies to reduce brain injury through motor vehicle safety (seat belt use, distraction free driving, the Connecticut Graduated Driver’s License), helmet use, pedestrian safety, and concussion awareness.
