FND Hope has launched its awareness campaign for World FND Month in April.

By dedicating the entire month of April to World FND Month 2021, FND Hope aims to improve understanding of Functional Neurological Disorders (FND), their lack of accessible treatment, and the need to improve research, understanding, and to empower those with FND to better health.

FND is a problem with the nervous system and how the brain and body send and receive signals. It affects men, women, and children throughout the world.

During FND Month, which runs for the whole of April, communities across the globe join FND Hope to raise awareness through social media campaigns, government advocacy, lighting buildings, local events, and many more activities.

The theme for this year’s FND Month is #FNDaware. FND Hope is encouraging advocates and partners to reflect on the positive steps they’ve taken – including those stemming from setbacks or challenges – toward educating themselves and others about FND.
