What Brain Injury Awareness Means to Me

Brain Injury Awareness Month this June was a chance for CONNECT residents to share their thoughts on brain injury. 

Blanks posters were left in each CONNECT house and residents were invited to write or draw on them to share their insights about brain injury.

Some residents drew pictures, others wrote poetry, others wrote just a few words.

"My brain injury may be invisible but I am not," wrote one resident. "Isolation is not fun! It makes me happy to be around a lot of people!" Wrote another. Someone else wrote, "TBI: Totally Brave Individual"

The posters were shared on CONNECT's Facebook page and images of them were sent to local media outlets to spread awareness about brain injury.

"Who better to explain what we need to be aware of when it comes to brain injury than the individuals going through that experience," said Karen Time, Director of People, Culture and Services at CONNECT.
