National Brain Awareness Week – March 11th to 17th, 2019

28 Feb

CaptureDid you know that over 800,000 people in Ireland are living with a neurological condition?

Neurological conditions affect the brain and spinal cord and include many common conditions such as stroke, migraine, epilepsy and acquired brain injury, as well as rare and genetically transmitted conditions.

Love your Brain is an awareness campaign led by the Neurological Alliance of Ireland to coincide with National Brain Awareness Week March 11th to 17th 2019. The campaign aims to promote greater awareness and understanding of the brain and brain conditions, as well as the need for more investment in services, research and prevention. Love your Brain is supported by over 20 patient organisations and research groups which will be involved in organising events for Brain Awareness Week throughout the country.

There are 4 parts to the Campaign:

  1. Understand your Brain: Promoting greater understanding and knowledge about our brains and how they work
  2. Keeping Your Brain Healthy: Raising awareness of brain health and how you can protect and strengthen your brain
  3. Living with a Neurological Condition: Calling for more investment in services for the 800,000 Irish people living with neurological conditions
  4. Promoting Brain Research: Highlighting the need to support research into the brain and brain conditions
