Help build a brighter future for people with concussion with an EOFY donation
Imagine an injury that no one can see.
Unlike a broken bone, a concussion is an invisible injury. For many who suffer from a concussion, understanding how to manage an injury you can’t see is one of the biggest hurdles.
Concussion is a real injury.
Just because it can’t be seen, doesn’t mean it can’t be real.
Concussion results from a forceful impact to your head or body that causes your brain to move within your skull. There is no way of telling whether an impact will cause a concussion.
Concussion damages and changes normal brain functioning. This is mostly temporary, but for 20% to up to 50% of people, symptoms can last much longer.
Concussion can stop people working, and doing the most simple, daily tasks of living.
Recovery is more likely if the symptoms are managed, especially in the first 24 – 48 hours after injury.
Connectivity Traumatic Brain Injury Australia is empowering the community with the knowledge needed to better manage concussion, and we’re asking for your help!
Please consider a tax deductible donation this end of financial year to help us, help our community understand concussion and achieve better outcomes for those that suffer.
As a not-for-profit organisation, we warmly welcome any donation to help support our work in educating, raising awareness and improving the lives of people who suffer from a traumatic brain injury, including concussion.
Every gift helps us to work towards a healthier Australia through enhanced knowledge and management of TBI.
