Why Brain Injury?
1 in 3 people will be affected by a brain injury at some point in their lives.
Brain injury is one of the biggest - yet most neglected - global health challenges we face. At least 2.5 million people in the UK 1 and 155 million people globally2 live with the consequences of brain injury - more than with breast cancer or dementia. With aging populations, that number is set to double by 2035.
Brain injury affects the whole person - brain, body, and mind - and survivors have complex recovery needs. Integrated physical disability, cognitive impairment, mental health, and emotional trauma services are essential for survivors to recover and simply don't exist. Many lose their independence, and the social and emotional impacts can be overwhelming.
Despite advances in our understanding of the brain, effective treatment, and support for people with brain injury remains poor, with nearly half of all survivors feeling abandoned after leaving the hospital. The devastating personal, societal, and economic consequences of brain injury demand that we do better.
