My Amazing Brain Schools Programme - Brain Health Scotland

About My Amazing Brain Schools Programme - Brain Health Scotland

Research shows that 40 per cent of dementias could be prevented through lifestyle changes. Our evidence-based campaign empowers children to keep their brain healthy. It is based on the fact there are as many connections between brain cells as stars in the galaxy. Through animations and activities, children imagine their brain as being full of stars, and learn that healthy habits like social activity, nutritious food, sleep, relaxation and head safety will keep their stars shining. The programme has been co-designed with parents, teachers and people with lived experience of dementia to offer learning opportunities in class and at home.
