Brain Injury Awareness Week Brain Injury Awareness Week aims to increase public awareness of acquired brain injury - damage to the brain after birth caused, for example, by accident, stroke, alcohol or other drugs.
Stroke: signs, symptoms and treatment A stroke (cerebrovascular accident, CVA, or cerebral vascular accident) occurs when a part of the brain is damaged or destroyed because it is deprived of blood, and therefore oxygen.
Stroke: warning signs By recognising the warning signs of a stroke and taking quick action, you could save your life and reduce the chance of permanent brain damage.
