Brain Injury Awareness Month

Brain Injury Can Happen to Anyone

 

The mission of Brain Injury Canada is to enhance the quality of life of individuals and families/caregivers living with brain injury in Canada.  The Board, Staff and volunteers of Brain Injury Canada are dedicated to facilitating post-trauma research, education, awareness and advocacy in partnership with national, provincial/territorial and regional associations and other stakeholders.

Did you know?

  • Brain injury is the NUMBER ONE cause of death and disability WORLDWIDE among children, youth and those under age 44.
  • Over a million Canadians live with the effects of an acquired brain injury
  • The annual incidence of ABI is greater than that of Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, HIV/AIDS and Breast Cancer combined.

Acquired brain injury is a major public health concern yet does not receive the attention it should. This needs to change.
