Concussion Box is a an organization dedicated to making the experience of having a concussion less isolating. With an online audio library of concussion stories, including content created by people with lived experience of concussion, medical professionals, and friends / family who have supported a loved one with a concussion, they provide a platform where people recovering from concussions and those supporting them can find a community.
Concussion Box is facilitating an ONLINE Series at BIST which is geared towards people with Persistent Concussion Symptoms – though everyone living with the effects of brain injury is welcome – about teaching participants about the power of storytelling as medicine and deepening connections within community.
At the end of the series, participants will have the opportunity to share and record their story. People with lived experience of concussion can choose to upload their story to the Concussion Box Online Community.
