According to Brain Injury Canada, 160,000 Canadians sustain brain injuries every year. Acquired Brain Injury is defined as a non-degenerative and non-congenital insult to the brain that may affect cognitive, emotional, or physical function. June is dedicated to raising awareness of these injuries, and the resources available to people who live with them.
MODC offers a variety of services to acquired brain injury survivors, including life skills training, vocational support, peer networks, and community integration. Click here to find out about MODC services.
There’s also our Moving A-Head Campaign, in support of NPHC’s Wade Hampton House in Sudbury, which houses people with acquired brain injuries. Currently, there’s a wait-list of 25 people, and we’re trying to raise $1 million for a second home. Click here to find out more about NPHC's Moving A-Head campaign.
