Mission


ThinkFirst: Leading injury prevention through education, research and policy.

Each year, an estimated 1.7 million persons in the United States sustain a brain injury, and 12,000 - 20,000 sustain a spinal cord injury. In fact, injury is the leading cause of death among children and teens. The most frequent causes of these injuries are motor vehicle crashes, violence, falls, sports and recreation. The good news is that most injuries are preventable! The ThinkFirst National Injury Prevention Foundation's award-winning, evidence-based programs are aimed at helping people learn to reduce their risk for injury.


Our network of ThinkFirst Chapters provides powerful, thought-provoking, upbeat programs to students of all ages. "Street Smart," the Safety Superhero, delights young children, while teens relate to our VIP speakers - Voices For Injury Prevention - who share how a traumatic injury needlessly changed their life. Each year ThinkFirst chapters provide thousands of educational presentations to schools, businesses, organizations, conferences, and community events.
