Superheroes save the day.
Supernurses save every day.

SameYou knows that nurses are vital during brain injury recovery.

2020 is the International Year of the Nurse and coronavirus has shown us that we need them now more than ever before. Nurses set us on the road to recovery and reconnect us with hope when we lose it. Somebody is saved every day by their dedication. That is what it means to be super.

Join us as we celebrate Supernurses around the world.

Say Thanks!

2020 has shown the world how much we need nurses. Celebrate Supernurses with Emilia.

Everyone has a different recovery journey and everyone needs support and help. Rehabilitation can be hard to access and people often feel abandoned and isolated. SameYou wants to change that and is working to help increase and improve brain injury recovery support.

Emilia talks about her Supernurse, who helped her through her first brain haemorrhage and the years thereafter, and explains why she is so special.

Do you have a Supernurse who has helped you in your recovery or helped someone you care for? Tell us about them and join us in celebrating Supernurses around the world...

When you leave hospital… make sure
recovery comes home with you.

When you leave hospital, it can feel like you are ‘falling off a cliff’. We are building a new digital library with our wide community of clinicians and therapists to provide reassurance on your journey to recovery and finding your SameYou.

Positive Minds: Building Wellbeing after Brain Injury

Dr Zoe Fisher discusses the benefit of positive emotion and experiences following brain injury, talking you through some exercises that have been shown to improve wellbeing that you can practice at home.

Positive Health: How positive health behaviours impact on the mind

Professor Andrew Kemp explains how positive health behaviours - such as engaging in regular exercise and adopting a healthy diet - complement psychological interventions for improving wellbeing following brain injury.

Positive Relationships: Dealing with other people after brain injury

Dr Giles Yeates explains why, following acquired brain injury, survivors often need their world to be predictable and routine-based to manage day to day. However an unavoidable aspect of life that is very unpredictable is the presence of other people – their actions and communication.

What is a brain injury?

Emilia talks to Professor Nick Ward who runs the UCL Queen Square rehabilitation service, about what she, as a patient, wanted to know about brain injury recovery, what happens after a brain injury and the innovations that will transform rehabilitation in the future. In this first video, Professor Ward explains what a brain injury is.
