About the Event

In 2010 the Brain Injury Social Work Group identified the need to consider the experience of those people with acquired brain injury who also had other complex issues. The conference held that year explored many areas and has served as a reference since that time.

Having navigated changes in health and social care, the Mental Capacity Act, The Care Act and many other reforms, we plan to revisit these issues to explore which, if any, have been resolved, ameliorated or compounded. 

The day will include discussion of case studies examining co-existing conditions including substance abuse, alcoholism, homelessness, domestic violence and mental health issues.
