Brain Injury: Help for families – Find out how Headway can help you

If you have a family member with a brain injury, we are here to help. We have a range of services for your injured family member, but also and just as importantly, we have family support services specifically for you too.

We also have a lot of information for you, free to download and if you have any questions, or you’re not sure where to start, contact our friendly Information and Support team who can point you in the right direction.

When someone has a brain injury, we know that it doesn’t just affect them, but affects you as their family member. More often than not, it can happen that when a family member has a brain injury a lot of extra responsibility can fall on your shoulders. It is possible to become stressed, or even unwell, from the demands on your time, energy and emotions.

Remember to ask yourself, ‘What about me?’ It’s OK to think about yourself and what you need too.
