I hope I’m not in here under false pretences but I’m posting this in behalf of my son. He suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident 2 years ago. He went back to work after 4 months (wrongly - he was ‘persuaded’ to return by his employer). He works in IT so a lot of brain work. He’s doing exceptionally well but suffers from depression, anxiety, and still has issues of memory loss and total fatigue (brain shut down). His company seem to think he’s fully recovered and one of the newcomers even seems to think it’s a joking matter. He needs to move on to another job but has spells where his fatigue is overwhelming and he’s not as productive as he should be. The environment is certainly not helping his depression. He worries though that any new employer wouldn’t understand and he wouldn’t survive any probationary period. I’m sure, however, that there must be employers out there who would be sympathetic - am I right and how do we find them? He’s a bright lad and a hard worker.
