Carers Week Zoom Event
On Thursday the 15th of October BrainLink will host a zoom event, which will also be on Facebook Live on BrainLink's official page HERE
There will be Carers, Staff and Board Members.
There will also be special guest speakers:
Sharon Strugnell - CEO BrainLink Services

Bridie Phillips - BrainLink Carer (A day in the life of)
Dr Grant Blashki - Beyond Blue (Top tips for mental health and wellbeing)
"Remaining Positive in uncertain times" is a theme that will be prevalent during the zoom event.
We understand that COVID-19 and the restrictions throughout Australia, more so in Victoria, has had a significant impact on carers, families and people living with Brain Injuries.
We will also be sharing short stories, quotes, art work, photos and much more from Carers who participate in Carer group events during the week.
Here are some examples below:
"I have attached a screenshot from a Tuesday Carer catch up - I have been very grateful to BrainLink and have been receiving Carer support since 2011. The zoom sessions have been providing me with not only support but also respite - by getting us connected socially, mentally and physically" - Harumi
"I would like to say thank you for allowing me the opportunity to participate in the drawing by numbers painting class. This mindfulness activity allows me to focus on the present and improve my mental health during this lockdown period. I have managed to complete the painting and would like to share with you. I look forward to joining the zoom to celebrate Carers week." - Le
