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 a brain injury. 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).

What makes the HU2BI program special?
This program offers students the opportunity to see first-hand the effects brain injury can have on individuals, families, friends and the community.
HU2BI raises awareness of the potential outcomes of high-risk behaviour (such as binge drinking, assaults, drink driving, etc) and provides program participants with the knowledge to make informed choices when faced with decisions that could have a potentially negative impact on their life.
