The mission of Unmasking Brain Injury is 

  • to promote awareness of the prevalence of brain injury;
  • to give survivors a voice and the means to educate others on what it’s like to live with a brain injury;
  • to show others that persons living with a disability due to their brain injury are like anyone else, deserving of dignity, respect, compassion and the opportunity to prove their value


 After the Unmasking Brain Injury project was first launched, a website was created that allows anyone to view masks and their explanations (www.Unmaskingbraininjury.org)
