Learn more about brain injury
At Brain Injury Canada, our mission is to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families/caregivers living with brain injury in Canada.
We have a vision for the future: one where all individuals and families/caregivers living with the effects of brain injury are supported, valued and engaged in their communities. The first step towards this vision is awareness. Brain injury is often called an "invisible illness" not only because many of the effects of brain injury are not readily visible, but because people simply don't understand how prevalent it is. But there are 1.5 million Canadians living with brain injury who need better supports and services. This number doesn't include people with concussion, military head injuries, or the families and caregivers whose lives are also affected.
This video gives a brief introduction to what brain injury is, what can cause it, and what is needed to support this community.
With help from donors and supporters like you, we can advocate for better supports and services, create more resources and educational material for survivors, caregivers and health care professionals, and create strong community connections.
