Traumatic Brain Injury 101: Understanding the Basics and How to Help

Halina (Lin) Haag, Faculty of Social Work

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading cause of disability in Canada, yet a lack of knowledge and understanding of TBI often leads to misdiagnosis and inadequate support, resulting in higher rates of mental illness, poverty, unemployment, and homelessness. This lecture will raise TBI awareness by helping people understand the basics (how you get one, what it looks like, and what happens for people after a TBI), and discussing the increased challenges experienced by people in particularly vulnerable populations (women exposed to domestic violence, homeless and/or criminalized individuals, and people struggling with mental health and addictions).

The lecture series is a partnership between the Town of Milton, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Milton Public Library.

Admission is free. No registration is required. All lectures take place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
