Workshops for people in their 20′s & 30′s
Our workshops for people with brain injuries for people in their 20's & 30's who have a brain injury. They have a social and training focus. The attendees receive specialised training in how to develop and maintain relationships.
The main objectives of these events:
1. To increase the self esteem and coping mechanisms of young people with brain injury
2. To developing coping mechanisms for carers of young people with brain injury
3. Develop a Brí youth group that will meet quarterly into the future.
4. Create awareness about ABI and the plight of young people with brain injury

So what happens at this event?
The day usually begins at 10am with registration, tea/coffee and refreshments.
We then have a quick introduction to go through what will happen through the day.
There is then a guest speaker, at our previous events we had a discussion on "The old you & the new you" which proved successful with all attendees.
We then move on to have group discussions, this is a great chance for attendees to get to know each other and share experiences.
The rest of the day runs through different topics such as:
- How others see me
- How can I change?
- What supports do I need?
We always try and fit in a social element, previous events have had "The Gombeens" street performers, Jon kenny, comedian.
The day also includes a hot lunch and evening meal.
The day ends at approx 7pm
Who can attend these events?
These events are for people with brain injuries who are in their 20's and 30's.
A carer/family member/friend may also attend with the person who has a brain injury if needed.
