Call for greater funding to tackle role of brain injuries in domestic violence cases

An advocacy group is calling for budget funding for early intervention services for acquired brain injury, a condition which can lead to domestic violence.

The condition affects the frontal lobe and can cause limited patience as well as aggressive and violent behaviour.

The Brain Injury Association of Tasmania wants the State Government to provide early intervention services so the behaviour associated with acquired brain injury does not lead to domestic violence.
