June 14, 2017 - Tonight HSH Supports Brain Injury Awareness Month as Sponsor of BIST/OBIA Mix & Mingle

2017 MM BIST

 

June is Brain Injury Awareness Month in Canada.  HSH is proud to be an ongoing supporter of the Brain Injury Society of Toronto (BIST), and the Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA). Both organizations continue to support those living with the effects of acquired brain injury through education, awareness, support and advocacy.

We were pleased to support the BIST/OBIA Mix and Mingle event at the Steam Whistle Brewery in Toronto to be held on June 14, 2017.  The annual event attracts over 600 guests from the ABI community.

Money raised at this event helps raise awareness and funding to support ongoing programs and services:

  • Providing compassionate, personal advocacy and support services to individuals living with acquired brain injury and their families.
  • A coordinated voice for province-wide ABI network and professional and family caregivers on issues impacting the industry.
  • Peer Support Program – connecting individuals who are “veterans” of a life experience involving ABI (the “Mentor”) with “Partners” coping with a similar ABI-related situation.
  • Caregiver workshops and monthly community meetings for members and their families.
  • Certificate Training Programs, providing education to professionals working in home and community-based rehabilitation programs.
  • Raising awareness of the prevalence and issues related to ABI, and working to eliminate the stigma of acquired brain injury, with the ultimate goal of saving lives and preventing life altering brain injuries.
