Brain Injury Peer Support Groups

December 11, 2019

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT) invite you to attend Brain Injury Peer Support Groups in Hobart, Launceston and Ulverstone. The second Hobart group will meet on Tuesday 14 January, with groups in Launceston and Ulverstone starting in January 2020.

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:
