Services and information


Service coordination

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

These agencies act as service coordinators who:

  • provide information about brain injury and the supports and services that are available
  • assess an individual’s needs
  • 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
  • assist survivors and their families to identify, apply for and coordinate benefits and services

Brain Injury Awareness Month (BIAM)

Each year, approximately 5,000 Albertans suffer a head injury. If their brain is affected, they may need help to live, work and participate in their communities. Brain Injury Awareness Month in June highlights prevention and available supports for people with an acquired brain injury. See the BIAM Calendar of Events.

Publications

The Brain Injury Survival Guide provides basic information and support to survivors of acquired brain injury and their families. For a printed copy of the Survival Guide, contact the service coordinator agency in your region.
