Reconnect Transition Program
September 8, 2017 @ 10:30 am – 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Friday, repeating until November 10, 2017
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 people who have a TBI as a result of a road trauma incident.
The ten-week group course is for people aged 26 to 65. There is a separate program, yRTP, designed for people aged 16 to 25 (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.
