MATRIX Neurological has created a short animated film called ‘Me and My Brain Injury’ that explains brain injury to a child or young person so that they can understand what has happened inside their head.
The innovative film has been developed with funding from the Goshen Trust and the Tees Valley Community Foundation. The charity has received very positive comments from everyone who has viewed the film so far; including senior medical professionals. The film is available for sale to help the charity with its fundraising activities; but will be given free to those families that the charity works with. All income generated from the film sales will be reinvested back into the charity to enable them to support more brain injured children and their families.
If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the informative brain injury film, please contact us via our website or call 01642 989116.
We also offer the opportunity for businesses to sponsor copies of the ABI film by covering the purchase costs of a fixed number of ABI films, to enable it to be given free to families outside of the local area. If any business is interested in sponsoring copies of the film, please contact Jan Rock or Ann Dale to discuss the available options.
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
"Taking brain injured children home causes high stress for families. Disjointed services exacerbate family stress levels."
"Participation in teen sports and normal activities leads to improved quality of life for children and young people post brain injury and helps to maximise outcomes"
"Children and young people have poor social competence post brain injury due to reduced cognition, executive functions, and emotional control. As a result they are twice as likely to have mental health issues in the future"
"There are problems with getting people into neuro-rehab. Those most in need are often those most excluded due to a lack of socio-economic resources."
"When different organisations assess different aspects of a child's neuro-rehabilitation needs, everyone looks at things from a different perspective and have conflicting priorities"
"Families need to be properly supported as 'resilience' is key to delivering successful outcomes for children and young people."
"When someone has a brain injury, early access to local, specialist rehabilitation is crucial to ensure the maximum recovery and make significant savings to the state in health costs"
"Thousands of children and young people living in the UK today without the help and support that can make a huge difference to their lives"
