Do you, or someone you know, need help remembering things, making decisions, coping with anxiety or dealing with the unexpected? Brain in Hand can help!
Every user’s journey begins with a face-to-face session with a Brain in Hand Specialist who has the expertise to encourage individuals to think about what they want out of school, college, university, work and life.
Our specialists guide individuals on how to use Brain in Hand, helping them develop and reinforce positive strategies for overcoming situations they find difficult.
Brain in Hand is for people who experience anxiety, find it hard to remember things, or have difficulties with executive function (for example, planning and organizing, initiating tasks, and responding to unplanned situations). These challenges may be common to many neurodivergent people, as well as those with a range of mental health support needs and some learning disabilities.
Brain in Hand concentrates on what’s important to an individual, the goals they want to achieve, and how they can use their strengths and skills to overcome challenges, manage anxiety, and deal with difficult situations
Everyone has something unique to contribute at work, in school and most importantly, in life. Brain in Hand is built around what’s important to the individual. This could be developing planning, communication, or organizational skills, or it could be building resilience and confidence to handle difficult situations and environments or cope with unplanned changes.
Brain in Hand for work offers a unique solution: equip employees with the power to decide for themselves what help they need. With access to bespoke coping strategies, people can solve problems at work independently; if things get tough, Brain in Hand connects employees to someone who can help – whether that’s their mentor, job coach, someone at work who helps to support them, or one of our trained responders.
Schools, colleges, and universities use Brain in Hand to enhance the support they provide to students. Our support system focuses on each student’s strengths and goals to help them deal with the pressures of studying, social life, and transitioning between settings. It helps with progress into work and towards independence.
Because Brain in Hand takes some of the strain of the little things, users can handle day-to-day difficulties more easily and free up energy to focus on the things that are really important to them. People using our system can achieve all kinds of new goals. Big or small, broad or specific, each person will be helped to work towards the things that they want to achieve.
Succeeding in education or work, living in your own home more independently, socializing or taking part in activities, or even becoming so confident travelling on your own that you can visit every train station you like– these are all things that Brain in Hand has helped people to do, but users can choose any goal.
