HIGH HOPES HEAD INJURY PROGRAM
http://www.highhopes.ws/
High Hopes was the first private non-profit organization formed in the country to exclusively serve the needs of the head injured and their families. High hopes is a non profit charity which also functions as a full service day treatment program dedicated to helping the brain injured from their recoveries. High Hopes has also had the highest success rate as we have been serving for over 36 years. Since our inception in 1975, High Hopes has been recognized as a pioneer in the development and facilitation of community-based services. This year over 400,000 people will service a head injury with some degree of impairment. Traumatic head injuries (a blow to the head resulting in coma or loss of consciousness) are the leading cause of death and disability in people under the age of 35. This "Silent Epidemic" leaves 50,000 to 90,000 people needing programs like High Hopes. Through innovative program services, High Hopes continues to provide excellent services with superior results at the lowest cost in the country.

The Neurological Alliance of Ireland (NAI) is delighted to announce the launch of our new campaign website at www.thinkingahead.ie. The site is an important development in our aim to improve and prioritize services available to people with neurological conditions in Ireland.
