THE ILLNESS
Encephalitis is inflammation or swelling of the brain. The inflammation is caused either by an infection invading the brain (infectious); or through the immune system attacking the brain in error (post-infectious or autoimmune Encephalitis).

OUR MISSION
The Encephalitis Society is here to provide support to individuals and families whose lives have been touched by encephalitis. We offer comprehensive and accredited information about the signs, symptoms and causes of encephalitis in children and adults and the outcomes of this devastating condition.  We promote and collaborate on research into all aspects of this little known condition.

OUR VISION
To live in a world where encephalitis is as rare as it possibly can be given its eradication is unlikely, and that those affected and their families, have access to early diagnosis, excellent management of their condition, timely access to rehabilitation and other forms of social support.
