Four Midlands Neurological Charities come together to launch a joint event for Brain Awareness Week 2021


As part of Brain Awareness Week 2021, our Midlands office has teamed up with those of Epilepsy Ireland, the Migraine Association of Ireland and the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Ireland to offer a series of free, public seminars about ‘Building Your Brain Health while living with a Neurological Condition’.

The seminars, which are open to all to attend, will take place via Zoom between Monday 15 and Saturday 21 March.

Leading experts in mental health, physical therapy, nutrition and psychology will offer attendees vital insights and perspectives on how best to manage living with a neurological condition, and how to maintain overall good health.

On Tuesday 16 March, Acquired Brain Injury Ireland’s Principal Clinical Psychologist, Dr Brian McClean, will present on ‘Emotional Literacy: How to navigate anxiety, sadness and change.’

Registration for this and all events in the series is now live online. You’ll find the links for each seminar below.

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
