Recap BIAT's involvement and activities during 2018 National Brain Injury Awareness week.
National Brain Injury Awareness Week is a week-long campaign to raise community awareness of brain injury, and to assist in the reduction of the incidence of brain injury. Each year the week provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on brain injury and to highlight some of the (often hidden) impacts experienced by people living with brain injury and their families/carers.
A brain injury can happen to anyone at any time, including significant numbers of people who have children. During Brain Injury Awareness Week 2018 BIAT facilitated a panel-style discussion focused on increasing community understanding of the implications of parental brain injury for child safety services.
For people with brain injury there are many cognitive, physical, communication, behavioural or psychological problems, and parenting can present complex challenges.
BIAT would like to thank panellists:
This month - The Hobart meeting will be a Joint Brain Injury and Stroke Peer Support Group. The Hobart and Launceston Groups have a guest speaker - Mark Lamont (retired clinical neuropsychologist). Mark has offered to come along and share with the group his insights into supporting people to move forward and also how neuroplasticity can support people in their recovery.View Article >
