Navigating a Rare Brain Injury as a Youth (and why mental health should be prioritised)
If you are a youth living with a rare diagnosis or if you are a parent of one of those youths, this interview is for you.
In this interview, I sat down with Krista Naugler, Child Life Specialist and Upopolis Program Manager. I discussed what it was like to grow up as a teenager with a brain injury and how I overcame the challenges that brain injury continues to present.
