Brain Awareness Week takes place this year from March 11th to 17th and is currently supported by 35 patient organisations and research groups. It 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.
The 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.
