Resource – Brain Injury Australia’s 2018 report on family violence and brain injury

Brain Injury Australia’s 2018 report on family violence and brain injury. Among the findings from this report are that of the 16,000 Victorians who attended hospital over a decade due to family violence, two in every five sustained a brain injury, nearly one in every three victims of family violence were children and, of those, one in every four sustained a brain injury. Completed in five months from July to December 2017, this research project identifies a strong association between brain injury and family violence, and significant gaps in service responses.
