Let's talk about Brain Injury
Coinciding with Brain Injury Awareness week this year is the important launch of a practical guide promoting understanding of all aspects of brain injury. This project aims to simplify the information presented to family members and carers of people with brain injury.
Funded under the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building Grants by the NDIS and notably co designed with individuals and carers impacted by brain injury, it is hoped that its official launch will be critical in helping individuals and families adjust to a changed life.
Although our primary partner for this project is with the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT), the entire project was the result of the collaboration of so many people. The information below is an initial release of the guide, videos and topic cards (flyers) that are available, before a dedicated website will be launched soon.
