FACTS

Falls lead to nearly half of TBI hospitalisation. People over 75 are at highest risk of hospitalisation and death from TBI.

Traumatic Brain Injury or TBI may be called mild, moderate or severe by health professionals, but even mild TBI can lead to long-lasting or devastating effects for an individual.

Children are at risk of more prolonged and disruptive symptoms after mild TBI. It can affect development and limit their participation in sport and school.
