Brain Injury Awareness Week – ‘Welcome to our World’: Social Isolation after Brain Injury

Brain Injury Awareness Week is being held this year 17-23 August. Our theme for 2020 is ‘Welcome to our World’: Social Isolation after Brain Injury.

This year most of the world is experiencing what it is to be socially isolated, which is something that we know people with brain injury often experience. We will include stories from people with brain injury and their families sharing their experiences and what has worked for them in combating the social isolation that everyone else is now better able to understand. This will be featured in next month’s newsletter, so stay tuned! You can sign up for our newsletter using the form below.

‘Welcome to our World’: Social Isolation after Brain Injury

During the COVID-19 global pandemic many people experienced significant social isolation for the first time. People with brain injury know all about this. All too often this is their day-to-day experience following a brain injury.

While life goes on as normal around them, their own social networks can become fractured leaving them feeling forgotten, invisible and alone. This Brain Injury Awareness Week we will feature stories from people with brain injury and their families sharing their experiences and what has worked for them in combatting the social isolation that everyone else is now better able to understand.
