What is this article about?

In Australia, over 700,000 people have sustained a brain injury that restricts their normal daily activities to some extent. Among those with brain injuries, three-quarters are under 65, and two-thirds acquired their brain injury before the age of 25. Every person with a brain injury is different. Long-term effects may range from mild to severe, depending on the patient.
