What is a brain injury?

A brain injury is an injury to the brain that occurs after birth. There are many causes of brain injury such as stroke, a car accident, progressive illnesses, hypoxia, etc.

Brain injuries may also be referred to as a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Acquired Brain Injury (ABI).

Brain injury is common. According to Brain Injury Australia (BIA) over 700,000 Australians have a brain injury which limits their ability to participate in daily activities.

Whilst physical disabilities are relatively easy to spot, a brain injury can have a less obvious impact on a person's thinking, emotions and behaviour. This can impact their relationships with family and friends and how they interact at work and school. Brain injuries are often referred to as a hidden disability.
