Acquired brain injury (ABI) adversely affects the freedom, choices and independence of an estimated 500,000 young people and adults living in the UK.
If the brain becomes damaged, people may experience the same symptoms as people with mental illness, dementia or learning disability. As a result, they are often subject to the same laws, such as the Mental Health Act and the Adults with Incapacity Act.
Acquired brain injury can occur as a result of a trauma, such as an accident, or after certain illnesses, such as a brain tumour or a stroke.
