Event description

Description

Join Healthy Minds Canada and a great team of panelists (both professionals and those with lived experience) as we explore the impact of concussions on one’s mental health. Though concussions are increasingly talked about in media and medicine alike, discussions tend to be limited to the physical (headaches, dizziness, etc). We know both from research and from personal experiences that concussions can have a serious impact on an individual’s mental health, leading to increased occurrences of depression, anxiety, PTSD, or even suicide. Sometimes, even from just one concussion.

Through further research, education, and discussion surrounding mental health and concussions we can improve systems of prevention, treatment and support, and further cultivate empathy, validation and de-stigmatization.

Concussions can happen to anyone. Together as a community, we can create stronger systems of support. Join us for an engaging discussion on this important issue!

Panelists and moderator to be announced shortly.
