It's estimated that every 15 minutes in New Zealand someone sustains a head injury. It happens mainly to men and boys under the age of 34. Seven and a half years ago Gary Farrow's life changed in an instant. He was 19 when he was in a car crash with another vehicle driven by a drunk driver. Gary's brain injury has left him with a significant physical disability and frontal lobe damage.

Gary talks about his long journey to recovery and what it's like to live with a head injury.
