A Change of Mind

After a diving accident, Nash suffers from homelessness, drug addiction, crime and eventually murder. Brain injury impacts more than the individual, it impacts society as a whole.

Derrick suffered his first concussions as a young boy who loved to box, but it was head injury from a car accident that assured his downward spiral into addictions and crime. According to recent surveys, 60-80% of the prison population and 53% of homeless have suffered brain injuries. After brain injury 90% of marriages end in divorce, ‘self- medication’ though substance abuse is rampant and the suicide rate increases fourfold. The resulting cost to society is immeasurable. And yet once the brain injury survivor leaves hospital there is very little help out there.

Following Derrick’s inspiring story, and those of other brain injury survivors, A Change of Mind demonstrates how broken lives can be re-built and damaged brains re-freshed, through new approaches to helping survivors, through science and through a change in societal attitudes and legal reforms.
