Please Wear Purple Tomorrow - #RowansLawDay
The more Paramedics understand concussions, the more we understand mental health, brain injuries and the lifelong impact (excuse the pun) on brain architecture and the cognitive development of youth and adults. Where years ago, we patted kids on the head and sent them to school with concussions, a concussion affects their learning, attention span, emotions/mood, light sensitivity and more. We now understand that brains, like other injuries, need rest, recovery and reduced mental cognitive, thinking energy to heal.
The brain, can never tell itself, it's injured. It can only be witnessed by behavioural changes.Tomorrow (Wednesday, Sept. 26) is #RowansLawDay.

Many schools in the #HDSB will be wearing purple in honour of Rowan and teaching students and staff to identify the signs and symptoms of concussion.
