OBIA has partnered with Headsup Concussion Advocacy Network and the former Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation to develop a multi-media series titled Sharing Experiences with Concussion/TBI. The goal is to provide more context and understanding to the many different experiences following Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
This series has seven episodes that will be released throughout June as part of Brain Injury Awareness Month. The episodes are led by a leading expert in the field and consist of a group of individuals who have sustained brain injuries discussing their experiences in a safe and supportive environment.
Each episode looks at different aspects of the recovery process. The premiere episode launches on Tuesday, June 7 and can be found on OBIA’s YouTube Channel. New episodes will be released Tuesday’s and Thursday’s throughout the month of June.
We are so grateful to all the participants for being so open about sharing their experiences of concussion/TBI. Thank you as well to our fantastic facilitators who guided these conversations and encouraged participants to feel safe to share their story. We hope these stories will help others not feel alone in their journey and given them hope for their future.
