Welcome to Mind Forward Brain Injury Services
Mind Forward Brain Injury Services (previously Peel Halton Dufferin Acquired Brain Injury Services) is a non-profit charitable organization, completely funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOH & LTC), the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) and Central West LHIN to provide community based rehabilitation and life-long support for adults whose lives have been touched by acquired brain injury.
Since incorporating in 1992, Mind Forward has been committed to offering services to all individuals touched by brain injury (including clients, family members and caregivers) based on an assessment of the individual’s needs and through a team approach to service planning and goal-setting. The client and significant others are welcomed as members of the program planning process, along with our staff and other experts.
This month represents Brain Injury Awareness. Every year, Mind Forward celebrates survivors who are encouraged to share their life stories through art, discussion, and/or social media. With the support of Headwaters Acquired Brain Injury Group (HABI), and Mind Forward, these masks were submitted to Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA). Read more…
