International Autoimmune Encephalitis Society founded AE Awareness Month in 2020 to shine a light on Autoimmune Encephalitis. AE Awareness Month is the biggest month of the year for the AE community.  It is a time when the entire community comes together to raise awareness of this treatable group of diseases.

Our main goal is to raise awareness among the public and medical community, especially first responders such as Psychiatrists and Emergency Room Clinicians, about AE and its impact on patient’s lives and the lives of the family members, loved ones and caregivers who support them.

Anyone can get involved in this International effort. Get involved today to shine a light of autoimmune encephalitis.
