Brain Injury Speaks Releases New Report on Social Isolation
In 2021, the Brain Injury Speaks Network conducted virtual focus groups. The purpose of these groups was to understand the lived experience of social isolation, learn more about why it occurs after brain injury and what people can do to reduce the risk of experiencing social isolation. We are so grateful to the Brain Injury Speaks members who participated in these focus groups and shared their experiences with social isolation.
