Online Brain Injury Peer Support Group: Coping with Christmas

December 15, 2020

BIAT invite you to attend the December online state-wide Brain Injury Peer Support Group via Zoom on 15 December 2020.

This group is for people with brain injury, their families and carers to come together to share, learn and connect with others. New Members Welcome!

MEETING DETAILS

When:        Tuesday 15 December 2020

Time:         10:30am – 12noon

Where:       via Zoom* - RSVP to receive the link to join the meeting

Topic:        Coping with Christmas

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.

The groups are open to anyone that has been impacted by an acquired brain injury, including those caused by: stroke, falls, assault, concussion, road crash, infection, brain tumour, hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), poisoning, and degenerative neurological conditions such as MS etc.
