Do you see me: Exploring the relationship between brain injuries and mental health
The topic of mental health is gaining increasing popularity in modern society. Undergoing a perceptual revolution, taboos and stereotypes are being lifted and it is now at the heart of health agendas worldwide. But, for people who have suffered brain injuries, it isn’t always pitted as a priority.
In this session, Vicki and Alan explore the interrelationship between mental health and brain injuries and what a dual diagnosis means for someone’s support. We uncloak the difficulties people with dual diagnoses face and seek to spark conversations on how we can reshape support to ensure people with brain injuries have bright futures.
From unpicking scientific facts with industry leading Psychologists to tangible interviews with our own brain injury experts, we speak candidly about the importance of person-centred care and why we all need to advocate for collective change.
Hear from three people we support, who bravely tell their brain injury and mental health stories. They voice their opinions on how we should work together across the health and social care sector to better understand and rehabilitate the whole person during their brain injury journey – rather than having a siloed, condition-led approach.
