"BrainHub is the first and it will remain the premier mental health portal based upon the provision of first-rate medical and non-medical multimedia information related to the management of dementia and the support of carers who manage dementia patients. Its focus initially is on dementia and Alzheimers disease but it will expand in time to encompass all mental ailments, from anxiety and depression to stress, schizophrenia and addictive behaviours. What distinguishes BrainHub from other websites and the very good work that they generally do is three things: product, approach and tone.

Core among our products is highdefinition video arranged in such a way as to maximize the supply of information from our experts.

There are currently over 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK and estimates suggest that one in three of us will be affected by dementia at some point in our lives. Dementia is the progressive loss of the ability to process thought or cognitive function due to a loss of brain cells or brain cells dying. Progressive means that the symptoms will gradually get worse. The word dementia comes from the Latin de meaning "apart" and men's from the genitive mentis meaning "mind". The deterioration is more than might be expected from normal aging and is due to damage or disease. Damage could be due to a stroke, while an example of a disease might be Alzheimer's.
