  • Raising awareness about the prevalence and impact of brain disorders, diseases & injuries.
  • Educating patients & clinicians through webinar events and medically reviewed articles.
  • Community support & advocacy (for migraine and headache particularly).
  • Keeping our supporters up to date on the latest medical news through our newsletters & social media.

Our research grants receive no government funding, relying on the generosity of individuals, corporate donors and bequests. Your support will make a difference – now and for generations to come.
