The latest news, events and information about brain injury in the Tasmanian and wider community.

Hobart Show Public Holiday

Wednesday, October 23, 2019

Please be advised that the Brain Injury Association of Tasmania office will be closed on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th of October.

The groups are for people with brain injury, their family and carers to come together to share, learn and connect with others.

People living with brain injury, including families, friends and carers, often say that peer support was very helpful to them on their journey towards recovery. People who have 'been there' have knowledge and expertise based on their own lived experience. Sharing this knowledge can help others to understand their own experience and move forward.

If you would like to attend one of these Peer Support groups please contact Robyn McWaldron, BIAT project officer:
