The Encephalitis Society produces a wide range of factsheets aimed at people affected by encephalitis, their families, friends, carers, professionals involved in their care and anybody interested in encephalitis and its consequences.

They are available in different format: electronic (website pages and PDFs on the Encephalitis explained section of the website) and paper copy on request from our office. All our factsheets are accredited by The Information Standard, a certification scheme supported by the NHS England.  

We produce factsheets on following topics:

  • symptoms, diagnosis and treatment
  • types of encephalitis
  • effects of encephalitis: cognitive, emotional, behavioural, physical and social
  • returning to work or education

Please see below an alphabetical list of our factsheets:
