What is a Brain Injury?

The effects of Brain Injury are often invisible to an unknowing observer.

Likewise, the visible effects of brain injury—such as physical impairment, behavioural issues, and even cognitive deficits—are often not properly attributed to Brain Injury.

Brain injury refers to the occurrence of an insult to the brain which causes damage. Because each injury damages a different part of the brain, every injury is unique and often described as either traumatic or acquired based on the particular cause.
