Sources of help
It is important to be persistent and to keep trying. A lot of people find it necessary to educate the people they need to help them. One of the main reasons for this is the lack of awareness amongst doctors. When they don’t understand the serious complications, symptoms and outcomes of a brain injury, and fail to make a referral to a specialist, very often the families end up not taking the brain injury seriously either.
Until protocols change, which they slowly are doing in some places, the issues created by this lack of awareness will continue to happen.
Local brain injury support groups often have access to many resources and will be able to offer emotional support. Every group varies in what it can offer directly, however, they will always do their best to point you in the right direction.
