Welcome to Your Brain Matters

Ita Buttrose, former Dementia Australia National President, welcomes you to Australia's first brain health program 'Your Brain Matters'.


Dementia Australia's Your Brain Matters program is based on scientific evidence that a number of health and lifestyle factors that we can all do something about are associated with brain function and the risk of developing dementia.

The evidence suggests that midlife is a critical time to think about looking after your brain, body and heart.

It is never too late to make changes that will improve your brain health. For more information visit
