Someone I know/care for has a brain injury

A brain injury affects more than just the individual. It can change relationships in an instant, altering family dynamics and putting emotional strain on all those who love and care for the person who has sustained the injury.

If you know someone who has recently sustained a brain injury, or who is living with the long-term effects, then this page should help you find support or information.
