Understanding Encephalitis Animations

We have developed a number of animations to help support and inform the encephalitis community, and raise awareness of encephalitis amongst the general public. Our first series, “Understanding Encephalitis” seeks to simply answer “what is encephalitis?” to all audiences. The animations look at the diagnosis, symptoms, treatment, effects, recovery and rehabilitation, and the wider impacts of encephalitis.

Further animations have since been developed looking more closely at the impacts encephalitis can have on young people affected, and their siblings.

All our animations are available on this YouTube playlist, or you can find and watch each film separately below.

They are also available in different languages, including:






What is encephalitis?

What are the symptoms of encephalitis?

How is encephalitis diagnosed?
