Brain Injury Information
OBIA is making the “invisible” visible by increasing understanding of brain injury and reducing the stigma associated with having a brain injury
There is hope, there is help! Whether you have sustained a Mild Traumatic Brain Injury (Concussion), moderate to severe brain injury, you are not alone, we are here to help! OBIA Helpline provides confidential, emotional support for anyone who needs a caring, compassionate and non-judgmental listening ear.
What Is It?
A concussion is a brain injury that can be caused by a blow to the head, a fall, motor vehicle collision, sports or being struck by an object. Symptoms can appear immediately or, in some cases, days following the injury.
