This year’s theme explores how although brain injury isn’t always seen, it’s a complex disability that affects how people think and feel as they recover and reintegrate into everyday life.
Brain injury is an invisible disability, as there is often no physical evidence of the injury. Despite not being seen, its impact is felt every day. After suffering a brain injury it’s common to act, feel and respond differently to situations as well as experience changes in your behaviour, personality and thinking. These changes can make it difficult to return to work, sport or activities you enjoyed before. It can also put pressure on your relationships with family, friends, co-workers and other people in your life – but Synapse is here to support, and we can help you navigate living with a brain injury.
