What will happen to my adult child when I die?
We now have an aging population of survivors who depend heavily on their families for support including living with senior parents. When their parents die, the responsibility of care will shift to other family members or friends, when possible, but many will be alone and living at risk.
UNDERSTANDING THE LINK BETWEEN BRAIN INJURY, MENTAL HEALTH, ADDICTION, AND TRAUMA
1.5 Million Canadians live with a brain injury and it contributes to homelessness, incarceration, substance use, and mental health issues.

If we do not include brain injury in every conversation we will never have a 100% solution to mitigating these social issues.
