National Stroke Association
Our mission is to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke by delivering education and other programs focused on the prevention, treatment, rehabilitation and support for all impacted by stroke.
Understanding stroke and the recovery journey can be overwhelming, but survivors and caregivers don’t have to go it alone.
Together we can improve stroke symptom awareness and support the stroke recovery journey nationwide. More than 30 years ago, our founders understood that stroke was a shocking event to the stroke survivor and their loved ones, but also knew that from this loss hope will emerge and recovery will follow.
What do we do, how do we help, and how can you get involved?
The National Stroke Association offers largely free education, a plethora of resources, tools, publications, services, and legislative advocacy focused on the needs of stroke survivors, caregivers and healthcare professionals in the stroke community nationwide. We were founded on the premise of spreading the word about stroke and empowering stroke survivors to come back strong.
You can become a volunteer, make a donation, become an advocate or attend one of the many events to help raise stroke awareness and provide urgently needed resources for recovery in the stroke community. Discover what we are all about, what we offer, and where the money goes…
