Education & Prevention

Raising Awareness. Reducing Brain Injury.

Why education?  Because brain injury can happen to ANYONE- ANYTIME- ANYWHERE. Here at NBIS we think knowledge is power and prevention is key and we want to share with people that brain injury is the leading cause of death and disability for Canadians under the age of 40 and that approximately 1.5 million Canadians live with the effects of Acquired Brain Injury.  The incidence of brain injury outnumbers breast cancer, spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis and HIV/AIDS – combined. This silent epidemic is affecting people in our communities, the homeless population, sufferers of intimate partner violence, and people who have experienced opioid overdose and we want to talk about it.
