FREE 6 week multi-disciplinary education program for individuals with post-concussion symptoms.
For Perth residents only. 16+ concussion / ABI survivors or caregivers.
The Perth County Concussion Program (PCCP) is a 6-week multi-disciplinary education program for individuals with post-concussion symptoms. In a small group setting (10-15 people), participants will receive education and strategies to improve functioning, coping, and life participation post-concussion.
Guest speakers include occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech-language pathology and social work. Each session will include education, a list of community resources, and the opportunity to observe the use of goods and technology related to the speaker’s scope of practice.
PCCP is designed to facilitate learning in a group with different learning styles, sensory/cognitive abilities, values, and experiences. Furthermore, we understand that many of participants have challenges with trauma, depression, anxiety or substance use. As such, the PCCP will be consistent with trauma informed care.
Given the current COVID 19 Pandemic, the PCCP will be administered virtually. In order to ensure that we are meeting the needs of all participants, two one-on-one sessions will be provided (virtually) – one at the start, and the other partway through the program.
