BC Brain Injury Association

Brainstreams uses a broad definition of ABI, and created a user-friendly list intended to support patients and families struggling with traumatic brain injury, tumour, concussion and stroke. The information is organized by topics (e.g., local brain injury and stroke organizations, referral rehab services and housing options to name only a few) and includes a mapping function to assist with navigation.

The list includes services (places where people can go, programs they can attend or services they can access). There are also “Learn”, “FAQ” and “video” sections that include helpful information and resources, details about upcoming events, and survivors speaking about their journeys of recovery.more info
