Brain injury is the number one killer and disabler of children and adults under the age of 45. In British Columbia alone, between 21 and 38 individuals sustain brain injury each day1. These injuries can be caused by internal forces such as a stroke or tumour or by external trauma such as blows to the head caused by a fall, a car accident or sports-related injury. The injuries can be severe and impact the central nervous system, often resulting in mobility and other physical difficulties, challenges with reasoning and thinking, and emotional and behavioural problems.

This section of the website is here to provide you with reliable information resource on brain injury that is 'open 24 hours.'
