In partnership with the Ontario Brain Injury Association, Community Brain Injury Services (CBIS) participated in the official Unmasking Brain Injury launch.
There’s a story behind every mask and behind every mask there’s a person, a person that’s been touched by brain injury.
Unmasking Brain Injury is an international movement and, through the coordination of the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA), Ontario became the first province in Canada to participate. In 2018, more than 1200 masks were distributed to brain injury survivors from 26 participating brain injury associations/partners across the province.
