In January 2020, The Cridge Centre for the Family began providing individualized support to women who are survivors of intimate partner violence and have received brain injuries from their partners.
The services provided through this program mirror the community-based brain injury services already available but don’t require a formal diagnosis to access this program. To see an outline of the brain injury community support services, please check out the Brain Injury Services Community Outreach program.
In collaboration with intimate partner violence-based services, the central focus is to provide trauma-informed skills, knowledge and support to women to navigate the challenges associated with brain injury while managing their health and wellness through improved access to health and community supports.
Together with their support worker, women can find healing, stability and hope for the future. The life-changing effects of consistent, non-judgmental, ongoing support cannot be underestimated.
