About the Peer Support Program

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania have a Brain Injury Peer Support Program for people impacted by brain injury, their families and carers.

Our aim is to support people to come together to share, learn and connect with others and help them to move forward to have a good life.

The BIAT Peer Support Program includes:  

  • Face-to-face Peer Support groups in Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone
  • Online state-wide Peer Support groups via Zoom
  • Closed Facebook Peer Support groups

BIAT have recently developed the publication "The Value Of Shared Experiences - A Brain Injury Peer Support Guide" that provides new and existing brain injury peer support members with information to help them learn more about peer support programs as well as a step by step guide to setting up and running meetings and leading topics for discussion.

Join a Brain Injury Peer Support Facebook Group

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania have established two Brain Injury Peer Support Facebook Groups, you can join:

  • A closed group for individuals with brain injury; or
  • A closed group for families/partners and carers. 

The 'Individuals Group' will assist people with brain injury to connect with other people with brain injury, to share their experiences and other aspects of their brain injury journey.

Families, partners and carers will also have an opportunity, through their own dedicated Families/Carers Group, to engage with each other about their experiences in supporting a loved one with brain injury.
