Mobile App launched for young people with acquired brain injury

A new app called My Brain and Me, developed by the Brain & Spine Foundation, has been launched. It has been designed for use by children with acquired brain injury who are 12 years and older to help manage their ABI and their individual needs. 

An app for those who have been affected by brain injury
Thousands of children and young people are affected by acquired brain injury every year and each child is as unique in the way they respond to a brain injury, as they are in every other aspect of their lives. Children may appear to make a full physical recovery, but the effects of a brain injury may take weeks, months and sometimes years to come to the surface.  You can read more about acquired brain injury on our dedicated page here. Divided into different sections – ‘Mood’, ‘Friends’ and ‘Brain’ – the app can be used by young people as a personalised mood diary and information hub. Users can log how they are feeling on a daily basis, access tips on how to cope when feeling down or anxious and learn more about the brain. The app also comes with saved numbers of charities and organisations that can help support young people with ABI, and users can add their own contacts and emergency numbers. The app is free and available to download for iOS devices on App Store and for Android on Google Play on the links below.
