About the HU2BI program
Heads Up 2 Brain Injury (HU2BI) is a program for schools that is targeted at senior high and secondary school students.
Young people are one of the age groups at increased risk of sustaining an ABI. The goal of HU2BI is to influence the attitudes and behaviours of young people, in order to reduce their chances of sustaining a brain injury.
Each HU2BI session provides high school and secondary school students with the opportunity to learn about: how the brain works, and the causes, consequences, prevalence and permanency of acquired brain injury (ABI).
