Mother's Day, Brain Health and the Other Health Crisis-Brain Illness

Coconut Telegraph

This Mother's Day share the gift of brain health with the women who have made an impact on your life. Join the Brain Health Initiative as we stand up for your brain health and the brain health of those you care for, and fight against brain illness. Here we are in the midst of doing everything we can to prepare for, respond to and recover from COVID-19. Concurrently, we must do the same and stand up and fight against brain illness, like dementia. In honor of the more than 3 million extraordinary, strong, passionate, loving and brilliant women in the United States living with Alzheimer’s disease, and their families and caregivers, we say Happy Mother's Day with gratitude.

Brain illness, like dementia, is the nation's largest under-recognized public health crisis. Even during COVID-19 it is imperative that we continue to promote and protect brain health and fight brain illness. Remember, women's health includes brain health. Brain illness, like dementia and depression, disproportionately impacts women. Women need to take proactive steps to protect their brain health. It is never too early and never too late to understand and take action on the protective factors of brain health and the risk factors of brain illness. Brain health belongs at the forefront of health, not an afterthought when symptoms present. Therefore, you must be an empowered and knowledgeable champion of your own brain health, of those you love, and of the brain health of our community. Begin by understanding the power of living a brain healthy lifestyle.
