Brain Awareness Week is an annual awareness initiative which aims to promote greater awareness of the brain and brain conditions, as well as the need for more investment in services, research and prevention. The Neurological Alliance of Ireland has led the way in promoting and co-ordinating the week throughout Ireland since 2005. This year's Brain Awareness Week takes place from March 11th to March 17th 2024 and our hashtag is #brainawarenessweek2024






Did you know that It is estimated that one in three of us will develop a neurological condition in our lifetime? 

Brain Awareness Week provides us with an opportunity to highlight the need for investment in services for people with neurological conditions as well as promoting preventative approaches to neurological diseases. It provides a wealth of opportunities to highlight current advocacy campaigns, profile specific at risk groups or promote awareness of individual services or initiatives aimed at meeting the needs of people with neurological conditions.
