“I was 22 when I had my stroke, and for the next 23 years, I had no connection to support.  I didn’t get what I needed back then, and the impact of that was devastating.  Since joining, I’ve felt embraced by a community that is global, which is amazing!  Because the connection to the community adds to the connection you feel with yourself.”

700,000 people in Australia live with a brain injury – 75% of survivors are aged under 65.

Survivors of physical trauma and chronic illness often experience isolation which is insufficiently addressed by clinical services.

96% of young stroke survivors often lack access to follow-up therapy and support to resume everyday life.

20% of suicides are linked to mental and physical health problems.

We provide survivor-led support and leadership programs that promote confidence, improve self-esteem, communication skills, enrich rehab outcomes and enhance overall capacity (both personally and professionally) to participate and contribute to community life.

“Before my stroke, I was a very good singer, so to lose that was a painful shock to me. I was extremely extroverted, but after the third stroke, I became more inward. But now, because of Genyus, I'm coming back to myself!”

“The impact of Genyus in my life has been so profound because it not only impacts me, but everyone around me - my friends, family and other social circles. It gives to more people than just me as a survivor. The effect ripples outward and reverberates all around.”
