Are you the boss of your brain injury? You can be!

In conjunction with Headway Glasgow, Ceartas are hosting a self-management course aimed specifically at people with an Acquired Brain Injury. The course will look at several different aspects of self-management:

  • How you can understand your brain injury.
  • How you can feel better about yourself.
  • How you can manage your own health and get the best from support services.
  • How to make changes to improve your life.

The self-management course will be delivered in two-hour sessions over six weeks starting in early August (the exact date is still to be confirmed).  The sessions are roughly broken down into:

  1. Understanding where I am now.
  2. Who can help, and do they?
  3. How do I feel?
  4. How do I get the best from my support and treatment?
  5. How do I act, and can I change this if I choose?
  6. Next steps: where do I go from here?

If you would like to take part, or are interested in finding out more about the self-management course, please contact Pam Thomson on 0141 775 0433, or email pthomson@ceartas.org.uk.


Self-Management for long-term conditions is an important strand of the government’s 2020 vision, part of the Healthcare Quality Strategy for the future of health and social care in Scotland.
