People who have fought back from brain injury were celebrated at a special graduation ceremony held in Birmingham.
A group of 20 adults this week received certificates after completing a year-long course on independent living skills.
They all took part in the Rehab UK programme run by Birmingham's Brain Injury Centre in John Bright Street.
Those on the course are taught basic everyday living skills they have lost in the wake of serious injury.
The Rehab UK programme is designed to help brain injury sufferers to regain their confidence and allow them back into normal life.
Joanna Wilcox, from Bromsgrove, managed to rebuild her life with help from the charity.
The 22-year-old was told she would never "walk, talk or see again" following an horrific brain injury six years ago.
She said: "Getting involved with Rehab UK changed all that - I had given up but the programme helped me find my confidence, it helped me rebuild my life."
