Community Education and Awarness

BIAT promotes community awareness and understanding of acquired brain injury.

Our education and awarness focus

People in the community often find it difficult to understand brain injury because the effects are so varied and are not easy to describe.

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania is committed to:

  • promoting brain injury prevention and safe behaviour;

  • raising awareness of the impact of brain injury on the lives of individuals, families and the broader community, and the healthcare questions it raises;

  • Creating a Tasmanian community that is inclusive of people with brain injury – through brain injury education and understanding.

Brain Injury Education Programs for Young People

A brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, any time! As
there is no ‘cure’ for brain injury, the emphasis must be on prevention.

Over 40% of people who sustain a brain injury each year are
young people aged between 15 and 24 years old*. [R to find reference for this]

BIAT delivers three brain injury education programs for
young people in Tasmania:
