When you give a donation to BrainTrust Canada, you're making an investment.

You’re investing in the right help at the right time for individuals with brain injury who are often overlooked - a roof over their head, food on their table, appropriate health care, and so much more.

You’re investing in strengthening families who deserve help in understanding and managing the changes in their loved one following brain injury.

You’re investing in mental health and wellness, helping those affected by brain injury feel validated, understood, socially connected, purposeful, and optimistic about their future.

You’re investing in a strong tomorrow, because preventing brain injury in our youth, who are the highest risk group, safeguards their future.

You’re investing in the stability of our community, because fewer brain injuries means the increased social and economic livelihood of all of our citizens.

And you’re investing in education, helping our community better understand both how prevalent and preventable brain injury really is.

 

In short, you’re changing lives.

We're proud of the successes our clients experience when they connect with us.  Because of donors like you, we're able to help people like Shelley, Mark, and Graham.

Shelley - Head Shot CROP
Shelley Pacholok

Her Road to Recovery

On a bright and sunny July morning Shelley Pacholok and her cycling companion stopped to discuss their route before continuing down a winding stretch of road. It would be the last thing Shelley remembered until two weeks later when she awoke to learn she had been hit by a truck.

Mark Bertolutti

Living His Dream

Four-year-old Mark Bertolutti was simply answering the call of a friend to come and play when he was hit by a car as he ran across the street. That day he sustained a brain injury that altered the course of his life.

Graham Kunz

Finding Community

In 2002, Graham Kunz was 15 years old and living the life of many a young Canadian boy.  He was a top student who excelled at sports and dreamed of a career in hockey – the game he’d been playing since he was 5 years old.

Group Programs and Education Manager

Our group programs offer a variety of opportunities that are not always covered in traditional health care practices.  At BrainTrust we recognize the importance of things such as art and music as an important part of recovery and wellness.  As a non-profit, we rely on donations to run these groups that are so effective.
