Brain Awareness Week is being observed by celebrating the ongoing advancements of brain science and awareness of mental illnesses and neurological disorders. The Belize Brain Awareness Society (BBAS) is a rapidly growing Non-Profit Organization that has been coordinating events to raise funds for patients who need to do Brain CT Scans and Brain MRIs to accurately diagnose them. Love News spoke with Founder of the Belize Brain Awareness Association, Kaylia Nunez, who explained the importance of treating brain illnesses.
Nunez stated that the organization also provides assistance to persons who have mental illnesses or psychiatric disorders. In an interview with our newsroom, Neurologist, Dr. John Sosa highlighted ways to keep your brain in a healthy state.
The BBAS is encouraging the community to support this awareness to help educate the general public about mental illness and neurological disorders.
