It's been a long time coming but just like our Ambassador Susannah Cahalan we were delighted to discover that Brain on Fire is coming to Netflix on June 22!

So many supporters of the Encephalitis Society have been waiting to watch the film version of the best-selling book which follows Susannah, then a New York Post journalist, as she falls ill with Anti-NMDAR Encephalitis and is repeatedly misdiagnosed until the mystery is solved by a doctor called Souhel Najjar.

The book has already done so much to raise awareness of encephalitis and we hope the film, which stars Chloe Grace Moretz as Susannah, will do the same when it appears on Netflix and reaches millions of people worldwide.

So get ready to grab your popcorn and tell your friends as this great film is almost here!
