Advocacy by and for People with ABI (Acquired Brain Injury)
Public Policy of Brain Injury Network Policy dated 10-18-08
Survivor Stories in the Media and on the Web: We caution families to think twice about releasing detailed information about their family member with a brain injury in the form of photos, stories, confidential information, etc. in newspapers, on the Internet, or in any other means of public distribution. It may be better for the person with the brain injury in the long run if his or her story is not broadcast all over the airways, the news media or the Internet. But this is for each family to decide. And if and when the person with the brain injury is ready, he or she can share whatever information he or she thinks is warranted.
