Brain Injury Awareness Week is an annual event which aims to raise awareness of brain injury in the community and assist in the reduction of incidents.

This year, special attention will be drawn to the prevalence of acquired brain injury among victims and perpetrators of family violence.

BIAWeek Fact: From 16,000 Victorians who attended hospital over a decade due to family violence, 2 in every 5 sustained a brain injury, nearly 1 in every 3 victims of family violence were children and, of those, 1 in every 4 sustained a brain injury.
