In 2015 the Brain Health Network was formed in Southwestern Ontario, executed by member representatives from all partnering organizations, working together to better serve the public. The Brain Health Network is comprised of credible organizations connecting a variety of brain conditions, including neurological disorders (e.g. Alzheimer’s, stroke, brain injury, brain tumours, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s) and mental illnesses (e.g. depression, addiction).
The Year of the Brain 2015 event was initiated by the Brain Health Network’s three founding partners: Brain Injury Association of London & Region, Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada, and Dale Brain Injury Services. A year-long series of activities and events was planned to increase awareness of the role the brain plays to our health and well-being, and address the urgent need for improved support services for those affected by a brain condition, their families, and caregivers.
