Meningoencephalitis Lived Experience – Kevin’s Story

Kevin shares his lived experience of meningoencephalitis.

Kevin, from Manitoba, Canada, shared his lived experience of meningoencephalitis at our My Brain: My Story event in October, 2023.

In 2019, Kevin was working as a Proctor when he became ill with meningoencephalitis.

The illness left Kevin with anxiety, a number of physical symptoms, while noisy environments mean his brain can easily become overwhelmed.

These encephalitis after-effects would eventually lead to his retirement with long-term disability in 2022.

Today, the amateur photographer spends most mornings at his favourite café doing homework set by his psychologist, listening to music and editing photographs.

Kevin’s lived experience of meningoencephalitis was filmed and edited by Camren Friesen.
