Brain Injury Peer Support Group Ulverstone
The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania (BIAT) invite you to attend a Brain Injury Peer Support Group in Ulverstone.
The group is open to anyone that has been impacted by brain injury, individuals and family members/informal carers.
Brain Injury has many causes including: stroke, falls, assault, concussion, road crash, infection, brain tumour, hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain), poisoning, and degenerative neurological conditions such as MS etc.
People living with brain injury, including families, friends and carers, often say that peer support was very helpful to them on their journey towards recovery. People who have 'been there' have knowledge and expertise based on their own lived experience. Sharing this knowledge can help others to understand their own experience and move forward.
LOCATION: Deli Central Cafe, 48b Victoria Street, ULVERSTONE
(behind the Council Chambers)
(Food and drinks will be at the expense of attendees)
If you would like to attend the Peer Support group please contact Robyn McWaldron:
phone: 0460 812 428 or 6230 9800
Brain Injury Peer Support Groups are also being held in the South and North of Tasmania.
