Head injuries that are debilitating are obvious while head injuries that are subtle go unrecognized and untreated. People may not understand what it’s like to live with a chronic brain injury.
- Increasing understanding of a brain injury as a chronic condition
- Reducing the stigma associated with a brain injury
