Alberta Brain Injury Initiative

Brain Injury 101 Webinar Learning Series

Brain Injury Awareness Month

Each year, approximately 5,000 Albertans have a head injury, and if their brain is affected; they may need help to live, work and participate in their communities. Brain Injury Awareness Month in June is an opportunity to put the spotlight on prevention and available supports for people with an acquired brain injury.

Calendar of Events

Program Purpose

The Alberta Brain Injury Initiative (ABII) supports adults with acquired brain injury to live, work, and participate in their communities. ABII is a network of agencies across the province that assist survivors and their families in accessing supports from various programs and community resources.

Service Coordination

Across Alberta, the network of agencies provide support to survivors and their families through Service Coordinators who:

  • provide information about brain injury and the services available,
  • assess individuals’ community support needs to enable them to live, work and participate in their community,
  • work with survivors, their families, and community service providers to develop service plans and service agreements as needed,
  • make referrals, where appropriate, for community supports and independent living skills development, and
  • assist survivors and their families to identify, apply for, and coordinate benefits and services.

Adults with acquired brain injury, and their families or caregivers, are encouraged to contact the Service Coordinator in their area for more information on available supports.


The Brain Injury Survival Guide is intended to provide basic information and support to survivors of acquired brain injury and their families. For a printed copy of the Survival Guide, please contact the Service Coordinator in your region from the list below.
