The Mississippi Youth Concussion Law of 2014 requires that concussion education be made available for parents and other interested Mississippians.
Most concussions occur without loss of consciousness, but they still carry the potential for injury. Recognition and proper response to concussions when they first occur can help prevent further injury or even death.
