Brain Injury News: Recognizing the Benefits of Art

Individuals who live with brain injuries can greatly benefit from fun, creativity and socializing. When combined, these can do much to boost engagement and quality of life for brain-injured individuals. Activities such as artwork, drawing, and painting are not just recreation, but also have positive impacts, such as anxiety reduction. Recognizing the benefits of art activities for their members, one Ontario Brain Injury Association (OBIA) set an example by hosting a fun art workshop this past August.

Yet, even the study's scientists are cautious about drawing definite conclusions about the sport and long-term brain health.
