The mission of Unmasking Brain Injury is to promote awareness of the prevalence of brain injury; to give survivors a voice and the means to educate others of what it’s like to live with a brain injury; to show others that persons living with a disability due to their brain injury are like anyone else, deserving of dignity, respect, compassion and the opportunity to prove their value as citizens in their respective communities.
Participants from around my community had come to a give voice and a visual account to a life lived with a brain injury. Some were acquired from a medical condition such as a stroke or brain tumor and others the result of a traumatic incident or attempted suicide.
The masks will become part of a national traveling exhibit. I encourage you to check it out if you can. Powerful
