A NEW BRAIN INJURY OCCURS EVERY 15 MINUTES IN NZ. We empower people affected by brain injury by providing information, education, advocacy
Clients feel more optimistic and positive about their situation and are able to make informed choices / decisions to improve their circumstances. The knowledge about brain injury give clients a better understanding about the effects of brain injury and help them improve their relationship with their family/whanau. Strategies provided increase their ability to cope with situations in their everyday lives. The person with the brain injury becomes aware that their behaviour is a symptom of their brain injury and by utilising our service they learn how to cope in challenging situations. Advocacy on behalf of clients at ACC, Work and Income, Housing NZ, Probation, Correction Services, medical assessments and other social services reduce anxiety and stress. Attending Support Group meetings where clients and their family/whanau share their story in a social setting with others who understand, reduces the isolation they experience. Our Education sessions aimed at clients, their family/whanau and carers on a range of brain injury topics increase knowledge and learning and enable informed decisions in day to day living, treatment and care.
We provide advocacy, support, information, and education to people who have sustained a brain injury, their family/whanau and caregivers. We raise awareness and prevention of brain injury in the community. Monthly Support Group meetings give people the opportunity to get peer support and share strategies in a social setting whilst reducing isolation. Clients and their whanau have a sense of belonging and feel they are being heard when utilizing our services.
