Reconnect Transition Program: 10 Weeks, starts 31 Jan – 10 Apr
January 31, 2020 @ 10:30 am – 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Friday, repeating until April 10, 2020
The RTP is funded by the Lifetime Support Authority and helps people adjust to life after a traumatic brain injury (TBI), assisting them to successfully reintegrate and reconnect with their communities. It is offered, at no cost, to adults who have a TBI as a result of a road trauma incident.
The program is run by Brain Injury SA’s registered psychologist Ashlee Raymond and draws upon the guidance of trained mentors who themselves have experienced the challenges a TBI can present. There were more than 20 mentors who assisted during the year, and they are a critical part of the program’s success.
RTP is a ten-week group course. There is a separate program, yRTP, designed for young adults (for more information, please visit yRTP).
The course is run in a supportive group environment and provides an opportunity for people to share and explore their experiences, gain further knowledge about TBI, work through their individual challenges and put plans in place for the future.
A range of topics are covered in the program, including learning more about the brain, common challenges after TBI, health and wellbeing, building resilience, changes in interpersonal relationships, future work and study options, and brain training exercises for improving cognitive functioning.
RTP is a 10 Week Course, Every Friday:
