BIAT Awareness Raising Video

BIAT is proud to share their latest awareness raising video. The video raises awareness around a consideration to acquired brain injury (ABI) that often occurs after it is too late. It also challenges the public misconception that it requires a significant event, such as a car crash, that leads to an ABI. You can play the video in the player.

BIAT has a key role in raising community awareness of acquired brain injury from both a prevention perspective and increasing people's understanding of the impact a brain injury can have on a person's life. This video clip was developed to highlight that a brain injury can happen to anyone, at any time, anywhere.

BIAT thank Domin8 Designs for the work done in developing the video based on the requirements of the brief.
