Awareness is the best way to prevent brain injuries.
At Monday’s council meeting, councillors declared June Brain Injury Awareness Month. It came after a request and presentation from the Saskatchewan Brain Injury Association.
The theme of Brain Injury Awareness Month this year is “You Can’t See a Brain Injury.” The focus is to educate the public on the effects of a brain injury.
According to the association, 2,200 people in Saskatchewan acquire a brain injury every year.
In Canada, acquired brain injury is the highest killer and disabler of youth and anyone under the age of 44.
