We, the Manitoba Brain Injury Association (MBIA), are your ally during this difficult time. We began as a group of volunteers who came together to share personal experiences and knowledge of the effects of brain injuries with those experiencing similar situations. This is a guiding principal for the services we offer.

Education and Awareness: Our mission extends to educating the public about the causes and effects of brain injury, emphasizing primary prevention and strategies for living with an acquired brain injury. We aim to enhance understanding of the specific needs of those affected by brain injury and offer educational resources and tools to empower individuals with lived experience. Additionally, our P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) Program focuses on prevention and awareness, offering a vivid and emotional learning experience. It provides insights through real stories from individuals who have faced life-changing consequences related to alcohol and risk-related trauma, highlighting the importance of making informed choices.

Advocacy: Our commitment extends to advocating on behalf of individuals with brain injuries and their families, engaging with government bodies and agencies to push for legislation and services that address the full spectrum of needs associated with brain injuries. This includes efforts focused on prevention, treatment, rehabilitation, and addressing the long-term challenges and issues faced by those living with brain injuries. Through our advocacy, we strive to ensure that the voices of individuals and families affected by brain injuries are heard, and their needs are met with comprehensive support and effective policies.

Individual and Group Services: We offer specialized services for individuals with brain injuries and their families, including group sessions, programming, and educational resources tailored to support their unique needs.
