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. The unintended consequences cost our country billions in emergency and health care services. If we do not include brain injury in every conversation we will never have a 100% solution to mitigating these social issues.
