University of Michigan Mott Children’s Hospital is using ORCAS’ Brain 101: What’s a Concussion Video as a featured part of their newest concussion training module targeted to youth. ORCAS developed the animated video as part of Brain 101: The Concussion Playbook, a package of web-based programs designed to train coaches, athletics staff, teachers, school administrators, young athletes and their parents about proper concussion recognition, response, and management. All content was developed by leaders in the fields of sports concussion, with input from athletic trainers, coaches, parents, and student athletes. Concussions can cause physical, emotional, and cognitive problems. Young brains are particularly vulnerable, since they are still developing. When concussions occur, the brain needs both physical and mental rest to heal.
