For FRAGILE Suisse’s educational institute, the "Académie FRAGILE Suisse." The institute was founded in 2001 to address issues stemming from brain injuries, including counseling victims on how to cope with their changed circumstances, and educating professionals.

The major division focuses on brain injured people and offers courses and seminars. The other division trains professionals who work with brain injured people. The courses are organized with the support of brain injured co-speakers.

Its mission is to assist people with cerebral lesions and their families in obtaining medical and therapeutic care and the necessary legal and social assistance to facilitate a reintegration into society.
