A brain injury can impact someone's behavior, cognition, mental health and more. For persons who are experiencing homelessness the impact of their brain injury can be even more detrimental. Research shows that individuals in this community are more likely to experience depression, memory loss, criminal involvement and substance misuse.
Many providers are unaware of the link between brain injuries and homelessness, and often overlook brain injury symptoms. This contributes to decreased access to care and support for those experiencing homelessness.
