Brain Injury Awareness Week 2019 occurs this week through until Sunday and is a great opportunity to talk about this often ‘invisible injury’, which not only impacts the person living with the brain injury but also their loved ones.
You may recall that Shane Daley, the winner of our 2017 Photographic Exhibition described the impact of a brain injury’s invisibility as being similar to the concept of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with gold.
Everyday our Support Planning team work closely with participants who have sustained a brain injury in motor vehicle accidents in Queensland. John is such a NIISQ participant who has warmed the hearts of our Support Planning team as he goes from strength to strength and gets back into life after injury. We thank John and his wife Maureen for allowing us into their lives.
