About the Your Brain Matters program

Your brain is your most valuable asset.

Look after it by following the 5 simple steps to maximise your brain health.

Your Brain Matters is a program that guides you on how to look after your brain health. 

It is based on scientific evidence that a number of health and lifestyle factors are associated with brain function and the risk of developing dementia.

Being brain healthy is relevant at any age, whether you are young, old or in between.

Scientific research suggests that living a brain healthy life, particularly during mid-life, may reduce a person’s risk of developing dementia. However, there are no guarantees as dementia cannot yet be prevented or cured.

There are 5 simple steps involved in the program. All are important for maintaining brain health and are associated with reduced risk of dementia.

Your Brain Matters was supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Chronic Disease Prevention and Service Improvement Fund from July 2012 to June 2015.
