The Brain Foundation has been doing everything it can for a healthy mind for everyone for over 30 years
We believe that everyone should be able to get the most out of life. whoever you are. Whatever your brain condition.
For more than 30 years, we have been making connections between different types of disorders. Because if you learn something about one condition, it may also be useful for another. In this way, we find more and more solutions to keep the brain healthy, to treat it better and to help people with a brain disorder participate in society.
To achieve this, we collaborate with researchers, professionals, patients and the public. Every day again. Together, we have one goal in mind: healthy brains for everyone. We want to be there for everyone and help everyone – whenever possible. By continuing to consider how disorders can be prevented or treated and by ensuring that people with a brain disorder can participate in the community. We do this by funding research and innovations, providing information and putting the importance of our brains on the agenda everywhere.
