HEAD STRONG

(Working Title)

Head Strong (Working title) is an emotional journey with Brain Injury survivors, families of victims, the professional medical staff and the post injury support services, as they battle continuously to rebuild lives and make sense of the traumatic events that suddenly impacted their world.

Simon suffered a sudden subarachnoid haemorrhage in Oct 2016 and thankfully survived. By telling this and other survivors stories, it is hoped that new awareness can be made about acquired brain injuries in Ireland.

This documentary is beginning production this summer with a release in early 2020.
