Encephalitis can not only have an impact on the person affected but also their family and friends. Our guides and factsheets offer information for family members, carers, teachers, family doctors and work colleagues as well as opportunities to connect with others whose lives have been affected by encephalitis.

We are holding monthly virtual meetings for carers and family members where you can chat and share experience, get advice and make friends.
Coping with the consequences of encephalitis can be highly stressful for the whole family. You may find you are taking a new and responsible role- the carer, but it is likely you may also need support and looking after yourself.
If you are caring for someone affected by encephalitis, it is important to acknowledge that this is likely to have a significant effect on you, and you too will need support.
