The new clinic will offer full and part-time program options in a small group setting. Cognitive rehabilitation, counseling and exercise will be a main focus for participants.

“The unique design of the Brain Health Clinic means that program participants can see substantial improvement in processing speed, attention, concentration, and cognitive flexibility,” said BrainTrust Canada CEO, Mona Hennenfent.

“These gains are possible even several years post-injury. We are excited to launch this program and give individuals with acquired brain injury or persistent concussion who have plateaued in their recovery a new sense of hope.”

People with persistent concussions, a brain injury, are interested in returning to work or resuming activities of daily living and can commit time and energy to regain lost cognitive, physical and emotional health are invited to the free trials.
