Traumatic Brain Injury and the Justice System – Webinar – 2019-01-10

This webinar will provide an overview of an innovative, multifaceted research program that aims to facilitate the integration of services for persons with traumatic brain injury and mental health and/or addiction issues by addressing relevant knowledge gaps. The program aims to address major service gaps for persons with these concurrent conditions that disproportionately affect individuals who are vulnerably housed, abused and criminalized.

The program aims to promote cross-sectoral engagement with numerous stakeholders and to inform decision makers through research and gender-sensitive knowledge translation activities. This project is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

    What does this mean and why is it important?
  • Traumatic Brain Injury in the Criminal Justice System;
