Unmasking Brain Injury: would your clients value this project?
The international Unmasking Brain Injury project encourages people with ABI to consider emotions and values relating to themselves and the impact of their brain injury.
Individuals with an ABI can be supported to depict this visually on a mask, alongside a written account of what their mask represents.
The Unmasking Brain Injury project has already been successful in many states of the US and in some South American countries. The masks created so far are impressive, very moving and very informative.
The founders of the initiative are keen to involve people from the UK as well as other countries, and to ensure that as many children and young people participate in the programme.
Children & Young People with an ABI – can you help?
The International Paediatric Brain Injury Society (IPBIS; one of the project supporters) has asked BABICM to encourage you to help. It needs a number of children and young people with an ABI in the UK to make a mask so that their creation can be included in the international display of masks at the IPBIS New York conference 2020.
