Stay tuned for more details.
With the seriousness of the escalating global situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic STOPCONCUSSIONS will now be withholding our regular in-person events until it is safe to do so.
Our main priority is for the safety and wellbeing of our players, the STOPCONCUSSIONS team, and our supporters around the World, so we encourage everyone to look after their health and that of those around them.
We remain optimistic that we will be able to resume our regularly scheduled events and fundraisers once the COVID-19 situation has stabilized and it is appropriate to do so. We will keep you all up to date as the information becomes available. Until then, we are pleased to announce we will be hosting our first in-person event on June 14 2021 in Toronto Canada! Golf at Richmond Hill Golf Course!
Please reach out by phone to those who need you and #StayConnected we are in this together – you are not alone.
„The best medicine for people, is other people“
Navigating concussion recovery can be an extremely challenging and isolating experience. As many as 20% of individuals who suffer a concussion will go on to experience persistent and potentially disabling symptoms lasting months and in some cases years – impairing performance at work, school, preventing a return to sport, and ultimately reducing the quality of life.
What’s more, 1 in 5 individuals may experience mental health symptoms that persist for months post-concussion. Challenges with depression, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and substance abuse are not uncommon and can pose a significant barrier to recovery when left untreated. These challenges may be even more pronounced in light of the COVID-19 pandemic as concussion suffers are left shuttered in their homes without access to their usual rehabilitation supports – unsure who to reach out to for help.
For this reason, Shift Concussion has gone virtual, offering video concussion assessment and rehabilitation via telehealth! If you require help from a Shift Concussion Provider, please don’t hesitate to reach out:
