Sign our open letter advocating for the brain injury community

This past spring, Brain Injury Canada circulated a survey through brain injury associations, social media and our partners to find out what are the top issues for those living with brain injury. The results speak for themselves. Approximately 62% of participants identified lack of awareness about brain injury in the general population as their top issue. 58.5% of participants indicated that the need for mental health supports and the cost of care (primarily the issue of limited publicly funded coverage and inadequate or no insurance coverage) were the next two most important issues. You can demonstrate your support by adding your signature to this open letter. Join us in this call to action and help the voices of those with brain injury be heard.
