BRAIN INJURY FILM

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.


"We need to harness the power of brain plasticity for treating children and young people with brain injury, especially at the key ages of 0-3 and at ages 10-16"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"Pediatric neuro-rehabilitation cannot be delivered in isolation. The needs of the child have to be looked at both holistically and within the context of the family unit. Parents need to be empowered to be parents in post-acute pediatric neuro-rehabilitation following brain injury"
The Children's Trust; United Kingdom
"Strength-based family intervention after pediatric ABI is essential. Parents need to be equipped with the skills to cope and advocate for the child."
Caron Gan; Canada
"Often families don't have the financial capability to access services. We need to rethink how we deliver neuro-rehab services to children and young people"
Vicki Anderson; Australia
"My colleague was blown away by the tremendous work your organisation is doing for society."  Social Worker

"Case management for children and young people post acquired brain injury is 'pivotal' to successful outcomes and must be local"
Deborah Andrews; New Zealand
"With support parents cope better so the child has a better recovery"
Andrea Palacio-Navarro; Spain
"Brain development is complex and prolonged. Brain plasticity is influenced by a range of factors. Plasticity provides a base for neuro-rehab therapies and treatment"
Professor Bryan Kolb; Canada
"Too often children and young people with ABI are discharged from hospital without specialist brain support that they and their families need to overcome lifelong challenges"
Andrew Ross; former Chief Executive of the Children's Trust
