About SHG-SH

In 2003 we built a federation of all self-help teams for traumatic brain injury. Even 2002 we sent participants to the first international meeting of brain injured to Denmark. 2003 we organized this event in Vienna. In 2004 this happening was in Spain, 2005 in France and 2009 again in Vienna. We are still waiting for the next event. Where will it take place?

In Austria we give help to the self-help teams for traumatic brain injury to get more participants. We have an own newspaper called “SHT-News” telling the latest news to all interested people. There is one meeting for all team-leaders where we try to get more popularity.
