Traumatic Brain Injury Program

The TBI team sees trivial, mild simple, mild complex, moderate and severe TBIs, which all have different needs and different possible outcomes. 

Traumatic brain injuries and concussions come from a blow to the head, or a violent movement of the cranium, causing a jolt to the brain.

They can be caused by a number of reasons :

  • Violence
  • Sports and recreational activities injuries
  • Transportation accidents
  • Fall
  • Assaults

The professionals of the Traumatic Brain Injury Program put together a series of videos to help you and your family better understand the impact of living with a traumatic brain injury.
