She shares her story with Ray Martin, pictured above and below, on “Dark Secrets: Australia’s Hidden Shame” which aired May 28th on the PRIME7 network throughout regional Australia.
“And it’s been media attention like this that’s helped make the Australian community aware that as many as a two women are killed each week the result of family violence,” says Nick Rushworth, Executive Officer of Brain Injury Australia. “What’s less well-known is that three women are hospitalised each week with a traumatic brain injury due to an assault by a partner or ex-partner”. Brain Injury Australia is proud to have a played a small part in the production of “Dark Secrets” by introducing Ray and his producers to Rosanna, and her story.
