You’re Invited to the Launch of Australia’s First Report into Family Violence and Brain Injury

Brain Injury Australia and its consortium partners – Domestic Violence Victoria, Monash University, No to Violence (incorporating the Men’s Referral Service), and the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare – invite you to the launch of a report into Australia’s first attempt at estimating “the prevalence of acquired brain injury among family violence victims and perpetrators” – Recommendation 171 of the Victorian Royal Commission into Family Violence, funded by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services.

The launch will held in the Swanston Room of Melbourne Town Hall (90-130 Swanston Street Melbourne) on Tuesday, 1 May 2018 between 12:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. (AEST)

Family violence is a significant cause of brain injury, in both adults and children. Brain injury is associated with subsequent, sometimes violent, offending. At the launch, you will hear from Brain Injury Australia and its consortium partners about: the report’s findings and recommendations; the local and international evidence for the rates and impact of brain injury and family violence; and what can be done to close the gaps in services and supports for both victims and perpetrators.

This is free event.

Light refreshments will be served.
