Mental Health and Disability: Brain Health = Mental Health

Mental health and physical health are fundamentally linked. Global estimates indicate that 15% of people live with disability (World Health Organization 2014) and that those living with chronic health conditions such as brain injury and dementia experience depression and anxiety at twice the rate of the general population. As Canada’s leading adult rehabilitation hospital, Toronto Rehab has unique expertise in developing innovative solutions to enhance brain and mental health for people living with disabilities. On April 11, 2017 our experts led an important discussion about Toronto Rehab’s mental health strategy.
