Participate in or are exposed to high-risk activities?
Would benefit from gaining a greater awareness of the possible outcomes of those activities, particularly brain injury?

Specifically to make young people more aware of issues such as the prevalence and causes of brain injury and challenges commonly held misconceptions associated with ABI in today’s society.
Raising awareness of the potential outcomes of high-risk behaviour (such as binge drinking, assaults, drink driving, etc) provides HU2BI program participants with the knowledge to make informed choices when faced with decisions that could have a potentially negative impact on their life.
Through raising awareness of the causes and impact of brain injury, testimonial evidence indicates that many young people who have participated in the initiative avoid high-risk situations in the future.
In the HU2BI program, students will also consider the long-term impact of ABI through shared personal experiences from people living with, or affected by, brain injury.
Using this information, students will analyse their personal role in predicting the short, medium; and long-term consequences of decisions they may make. They will consider how their values and beliefs have been shaped over time and investigate and critically analyse strategies to promote resilience for themselves and others.
Students will challenge commonly held misconceptions associated with ABI in today's society and research, investigate and evaluate local and national strategies/campaigns that promote safety and harm minimisation.
Generally, the HU2BI program runs for around 90 minutes - but can be tailored to suit the needs of your school timetable.
The cost of each program is $100.00, and will be invoiced to the school after the completion of the program.
