A brain injury can be life-changing for the person and their family and friends. Brain injury is unpredictable in its consequences. It affects who we are, the way we think, act, and feel. It can change everything about us in an instant.
Every brain injury is different and the effects will often be complex and will vary greatly from person to person, and depend, for example, on the cause, the extent of the injury and part of the brain that has been damaged. Severity is not necessarily a measure of eventual outcome
We attempt here to provide some helpful information. There is more information in the ‘Professionals’ section, which survivors and family members and carers may also wish to look at.
Headway Groups provide important social rehabilitation and long-term peer support to survivors and carers and family members.
Information about brain injury services in London can be found at the ‘London Services’ section of this website.
