Connected is a campaign of Stop Concussion Foundation (a non profit in Ontario) that connects people who suffer from poor mental health and directs them to the care that best meets their specific needs. It is a new initiative which ensures that individuals in need are given access to the proper care for their unique mental health and wellness needs.
“One in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives.” Many individuals have expressed post-injury stress and anxiety.
