As understanding about the connection between intimate partner violence and brain injury is only emerging, there is a lack of government funding to offer either services or training to address it.
In order to fill this gap, The Cridge Centre for the Family is working to raise awareness amongst decision-makers and to continue work with researchers to document the incidence of intimate partner-related brain injury, locally and beyond.
We have hired an advocate who will be working to advance the following goals:
- Public awareness of the incidence and causes of intimate partner violence and brain injury, how it can be prevented/mitigated and the harms and costs of not addressing the issue
- A commitment to sustained funding at the provincial and federal levels for client-engaged and research-based community and medical services
- A service and support structure in BC and across the country recognizes brain injury as a complex condition that has permanent effects on the survivor and their families.
