Brain Injury Matters (BIM) is a self-advocacy and community education organisation run by and for people with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). All office bearers and committee of management members have ABI. As a Disabled People's Organisation, we are a voice of people living with ABI in Victoria.
Formed over 20 years ago, BIM was the first incorporated ABI self-advocacy organisation entirely led by people with ABI in Australia. Originally known as Bear In Mind, the organisation was incorporated on the 25th October 1999.
