Here is a question for thought. Did you know, it is estimated that 338,700 Australians (1.9% of the total Australian population) have had a disability related to acquired brain injury? Of these, 160,200 Australians were severely or profoundly affected by acquired brain injury and needed daily support (Australian Institute of Health and Welfare).
What is acquired brain injury? According to the Better Health Channel, acquired brain injury refers to any type of brain damage that happens after birth. Causes include disease, substance abuse, oxygen deprivation, infection or a blow to the head. As a result of this disability/disorder that affects many Australians, a charity event titled Retrain the Brain took place to create awareness and raise money for therapy for brain and stroke injury victims.
