EFNA: Launch of Together under the Umbrella, a campaign on brain disorders


EMSP’s partners at the European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) have launched a new campaign aiming to educate and raise awareness of the impact of brain disorders.

Together Under the Umbrella was launched on 15 March, during the Brain Awareness Week, a global initiative to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.

EFNA’s campaign came about as a response to requests from members to ‘brand the brain’ by grouping all brain disorders under a common symbol.

Stakeholders interested to support this campaign can sign up here.

1 in 3 under the umbrella of brain disorders

The related hashtag is #undertheumbrella, and the slogan: ‘1 in 3 Europeans fit under the umbrella – do you?’


Together Under the Umbrella intends to lead to an increase in public, political and scientific support for all brain and brain-related disorders, and subsequently help reduce the associated stigma.
