Acquired brain injury refers to any injury that occurs to the brain after birth. There can be many possible causes, including assault, accidents, tumours and strokes.
BrainLife provides counselling and support for people with acquired brain injury through our group therapy activities and income generating programmes. We focus on a range of cognitive behavioural therapy techniques, as well as physical arts and crafts.
At BrainLife, we believe there is life after brain injury. This is why we help our members to acquire new skills and secure a sustainable livelihood through our income generating projects.
