The Cowichan Brain Injury Society (CBIS) is a place where everyone can be themselves. CBIS promotes understanding and rehabilitation to “ALL” affected with brain injury by providing education, support, and services during the lifespan.Our services include case management, individual
support, group support, brain injury education, assessment and referral services, help with visits to professionals, and help with forms, taxes, etc.
We offer an innovative post-rehabilitation and community-based peer support initiative, called “Let’s Connect”. It provides a welcoming environment to connect, contribute and learn. It’s all about peers teaching peers. Together we are stronger. Peer supporters listen, provide emotional support, and inspire hope. The program emphasizes health and wellness while empowering brain injury survivors toward occupation or meaning after injury. The focus is on who we are as people – spirit, mind and body.
Brain injury survivors come to build friendships, receive support, link up with valuable community resources, and explore life interests.
CBIS provides community-based programs for the Cowichan area. We want everyone to know there is life after brain injury. After all, if you don’t know a brain injury survivor yourself, then you probably know someone who loves one.
