Brain Awareness Week 2023


Brain health is a critical part of our overall health. It underlies our ability to communicate, make decisions, problem-solve and live a productive and useful life. The brain processes around 70,000 thoughts per day and it is, not surprisingly, interlinked to our mental health and well-being. This guide offers top tips for supporting your brain health and is focused on: Sleep and Relaxation, Mental Fitness and Social Interaction.


The top tips illustrated in this guide have been co-created with GAMIAN-Europe members who have lived-experience with a range of different mental health conditions1 . The quotes included here were gathered from a workshop convened in February 20232 . This guide also includes supplementary material drawn from scientific research.

There are six globally recognized pillars of brain health which are: Sleep and Relaxation, Mental Fitness, Social Interaction, Food and Nutrition, Physical Exercise, Medical Health. However, in this guide we will be focusing only on the first three pillars: 

Sleep and Relaxation

Mental Fitness

 Social Interaction
