Unmasking Brain Injury in Waterloo-Wellington
Survivors in our BIAWW area are very creative!!! Check out the masks and the stories behind the masks below.
In recognition of Brain Injury Awareness Month each June, the BIAWW joined forces with other ABI organizations across the province and displayed masks created by ABI thriver/survivors! The masks were shown across Ontario throughout the month with the goal of increasing awareness of what it’s like to live with brain injury.
Thank you to Grand River Hospital - KW Campus, Freeport Hospital, Guelph General Hospital, Monigram Coffee Roasters and Plumes Interiors who have allowed us to display our masks in their locations.
Thank you as well to Luisa D'Amato from The Record for her wonderful article on our project!
The Unmasking Brain Injury Project began in the US and is becoming an international initiative. You can find out more about it at http://unmaskingbraininjury.org/.
