My Brain : My Story : My Family

Please note this is a hybrid event.

We would love you to join us in Newcastle, England or virtually at My Brain : My Story : My Family this October.

This hybrid event is for anyone who wants to listen to the experiences of people who have been directly or indirectly affected by encephalitis. There will be opportunities to ask questions of the speakers and join us afterwards for a drinks reception (in person attendees) or the virtual support gathering.

At this years event we will be having a session in the morning which will be aimed at encephalitis in children. The afternoon session will be aimed at encephalitis in adulthood.

You are welcome to attend one or both sessions.

Children and young people are welcome to attend and we will provide activities throughout the day (the activities are available to in person attendees only).
