About Brain Awareness Week
Brain Awareness Week 2021 takes place this year from 15 to 21 March. The theme set out for the year is ‘Promoting Access to Services’ for people with neurological conditions. In addition, ‘Love your Brain’ is an awareness campaign led by the Neurological Alliance of Ireland to coincide with Brain Awareness Week. 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 30 patient organisations and research groups which will be involved in organising events for Brain Awareness Week throughout the country. www.loveyourbrain.ie
