Your brain doesn’t stop developing until the age of 25. Because of this, your recovery journey will be a lot different than that of an older adult. To help meet your unique recovery needs, we offer services specifically for youth ages 13 – 25 with clinicians who are trained to work with this age group. See the Youth Services we offer below.Book a Consultation
How We Can Help
Rapid Access Counselling (RAC)
Through a flexible drop-in format, our experienced youth counsellors will offer guidance and structure to help you sort through your personal challenges and celebrate your successes.
Life Skills Support
We match you with your own personal facilitator to help you identify, set, and meet your post-injury goals. We also help you access the resources you need to achieve the goals you’ve set.
Crime Prevention and Reduction for Youth
BrainTrust’s Crime Prevention and Reduction Program for Youth offers support and rehabilitation for persons with brain injury in contact with the juvenile justice system through customized brain injury support and advocacy.
Youth Support Group
Recovery after concussion or brain injury can be lonely and confusing. Our Youth Support Group connects you with others your age who are undergoing similar experiences and facing similar challenges.
Resource Centre – Coming Soon
In the Youth section of our Resource Centre, we’ve curated a selection of videos, webinars, articles, and recovery guides specifically for youth with concussion and brain injury.
