Brain Health Now
What is brain health? In short, it’s the shape our brains are in. Trauma and stress can impact the health of our brains and cause disease. When we have heart disease, we address heart health; when we have kidney disease, we address kidney health; and when we have brain disease, we address brain health.

“The Community Foundation is uniquely positioned to do systems change work. We can forge partnerships among local leaders to find solutions to regional issues. That’s the blueprint for change.”
"A community that cares about the one in five people who have a brain health issue treats them with the same respect, dignity and support as people with other illnesses, such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease."
Breaking Down Barriers
Brain health touches many areas of the community — schools, service providers, the criminal justice system, families and more. Addressing it takes everyone.
