About HEADS UP

	GOAL: Protect kids and teens by raising awareness, enhancing knowledge, and informing action to improve prevention, recognition, and response to concussion and other serious brain injuries.HEADS UP is a series of educational initiatives, developed by CDC, that all have a common goal: Protect kids and teens by raising awareness and informing action to improve prevention, recognition, and response to concussion and other serious brain injuries.

Initially, HEADS UP materials addressed health care professionals and their important role in diagnosing and managing concussions. More recent HEADS UP initiatives focus on sports programs and schools as key places to share concussion information with coaches, parents, and school professionals.

HEADS UP educational materials are designed help support individuals and organizations with their concussion efforts and are available in a variety of formats.
