As a part of Brain Injury Awareness Week in 2018, the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania hosted a panel discussion titled "Parenting after brain injury - implications for child safety and family violence services."
In the lead up to Brain Injury Awareness Week 2017, BIAT, in conjunction with Domin8 Designs, produced a video with Ella, a sixteen year old Tasmanian girl, and her mum, Traci-Jean, about the changes to their lives after Ella was hit in the head with a hockey ball 14 months earlier.
BIAT Awareness Raising Video
This awareness raising video was developed to highlight the fact that brain injury can happen to anyone, anywhere, at any time.. It also challenges the public misconception that it requires a significant event, such as a car crash, that leads to an ABI.
