Our Mission. Our Community.

 

Northern Ireland has over 5000 people living with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND). This is a common condition, yet information and awareness in Northern Ireland is low.

This site aims to raise awareness, inform and provide peer support to those with FND and their families.

 THIS IS NOT A MEDICAL SITE AND IF IN DOUBT ALWAYS SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE FROM YOUR GP OR OTHER HEALTH PROFESSIONALS.

What is Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)?

First, you are not alone, you are not making this up, and you are not to blame.

Functional Neurological Disorder is a real and genuine condition. There is a problem with how the brain and nervous system send and receive signals. FND is due to a complex combination of factors disrupting how the body and mind is interacting and working.

We were delighted to secure funding for the ‘fly free from stigma’ project.  This grant was allocated to raise awareness, educate and set up support structures for those with FND living in Northern Ireland. We are with you.
