About Brain Injury

More than 40,000 Ontarians experience a brain injury each year. Almost half a million live with an acquired brain injury (ABI). 1

A brain injury can affect how someone moves, speaks, thinks and acts. Some changes may be temporary, while some may be permanent. This can cause a lot of stress and frustration during recovery.


Additional resource: Making the Visible Invisible is a special storytellers series created by Brain Canada Foundation featuring the lived experiences of nine brain injury survivors.
