  • Penumbra launches ARBD (alcohol related brain damage) toolkit

    Created: 10/06/2021

    Leading mental health charity, Penumbra, has launched a unique self management toolkit for people living with ARBD (alcohol related brain damage). The team at Penumbra developed the toolkit in tandem with colleagues and residents in its two ARBD services located in Edinburgh’s Milestone and Glasgow’s Supported Living service, and features recovery stories from people accessing Penumbra support.

    Whilst clinical practice guidelines for the medical treatment of ARBD exist, Penumbra believes that this comprehensive recovery-focused toolkit may be the first of its kind in Scotland designed for use by people living with ARBD.

    As well as providing important medical information about ARBD and alcohol use, the toolkit covers key practical and holistic information on recovery – including information on reducing stress, improving memory, coping with challenging emotions without using alcohol, nutrition and exercise, connecting with others and the community, along with guidance on improving digital skills, budgeting and knowing your rights.
