Every year, over 6,000 Canadians become permanently disabled by an acquired brain injury. The effects of a brain injury differ from person to person, but have an impact on everyone in that person’s life. A brain injury can be a devastating diagnosis and because it is not a visible disability, those affected are often misunderstood and lack support.

Educate

We provide education services for our members, as well as for the public, professional organizations and private industry about the causes and effects of brain injury. Members of the MBIA have access to library resources offered by The Society for Manitobans with Disabilities. Multimedia resources include books, videos, and computer programs that cover a wide range of topics including prevention, rehabilitation and recovery tools, and resources for caregivers. Through education, we hope to promote awareness of the unique needs of people living with the effects of brain injury.

Support

We provide support services to individuals with brain injuries as well as their families through support group meetings, peer interaction, as well as social and recreational programs.

We have Support Groups located in Winnipeg, Brandon, Selkirk, and online. Contact our office for more information!

We’ve been there, we can help

The Manitoba Brain Injury Association helps individuals and families cope by offering support, education and advocacy. We also work to prevent brain injuries through public awareness initiatives and educational programming.

Our members have experienced the challenges of living with a brain injury and are committed to helping each other through the early days of diagnosis and beyond.
