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:
The insightful and thought-provoking discussion was filmed by Domin8 Media and is available to view on the BIAT website: http://www.biat.org.au/link-categories/videos
Brain Awareness Week is taking place from March 13-17 and presents a great opportunity to learn more about brain health, and the brain diseases, disorders and injuries that affect so many Australians.View Article >
