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 living 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.
