Vital Sign: Health & Wellness
Total Grant: $12,119 ($3,119 from donor contributions)
The Victoria Brain Injury Society's Coping Strategies program empowers brain injury survivors to develop healthy coping strategies as they deal with challenging aspects of their injury including memory loss, sensory overload, depression, social anxiety and isolation. This project will create a supportive environment where brain injury survivors learn to navigate and utilize local services, function safely in stressful and demanding environments and create networks of support that will allow them to become more self-reliant and to function as active members of their community.
