Saving Young Minds is a Non-Profit organization tasked with helping young student-athletes protect
their greatest asset--their minds.
Mission Statement: Saving Young Minds (SYM) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase
Awareness, Prevention, Assessment, & Management of Sports-Related Concussions in student-athletes from under-privileged
communities. By providing Parent, Coach, and Student research-based information, baseline assessments of cognitive and neurological
functioning, and professional management of post-concussive recovery, Saving Young Minds hopes to be able to prevent unnecessary
risks to student-athletes who sustain brain injuries in their formative years. These traumatic brain injuries often go unrecognized
and untreated. Educating parents, coaches, and athletes on the signs and symptoms of concussions can go a long way in the
prevention and treatment of head injuries. These students are at high risk for repeated injury and many do not have the financial
or mental health resources to identify and treat concussions sustained through participation in their chosen sport.
