Watson Centre Society for Brain Health

At Watson Centre Society for Brain Health, our mission is to improve the lives of people who have suffered brain injuries or concussion(s). Our team of specialists works with clients to develop customized programs that help stimulate the brain’s capacity to grow and change.

According to Brain Injury Canada, 160,000 Canadians sustain acquired brain injuries every year and more than 1.5 million Canadians live with a brain injury. After a brain injury (or a severe concussion) a person’s ability to process and understand information often slows down, which then affects their ability to live independently. We are changing that.

Our Vision

VISION: Improving quality of life of people who have suffered brain injuries, acquired brain injuries, or concussions.

MISSION: To provide programs, delivered by specialists, for the purpose of helping people with brain injury to improve and reclaim their lives to the fullest.

CORE VALUES/BEHAVIOURS: Safety, empathy, determination, collaboration, growth.

Why is Watson Centre Society for Brain Health Important?

Did you know that many of the 160,000 Canadians who live with an acquired brain injury are unable to get back into the workforce – forcing them to live on disability payments, or in some cases without any financial support whatsoever?

The program offered at Watson Centre Society brings hope to brain injury or concussion(s) survivors who’ve been told their symptoms couldn’t improve. The program proves that when individuals focus on rehabilitating the brain, positive change can happen.

How Can People Help?

At Watson Centre Society, we support people with brain injury when their initial rehabilitation period stops after the two-year mark. We provide assessment and support for people with brain injury in order to help them become more independent and to live more productive lives.

To register for one of our programs, each participant will need $4,150 per month to have access to 80 hours of individualized cognitive remediation that is otherwise unavailable. We encourage you to donate to Watson Centre Society for Brain Health. We guarantee that every dollar will help someone in need get a step closer to living a more fulfilling and independent life after brain injury or concussion.
