One of the most inexpensive and effective ways spread the word about Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is through social media. Please join us in calling attention to this special week by sharing your brain-related events, facts, and images.

Commonly used platforms include Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, and blogs. Below we provide campaign-themed images and a few sample posts you can use in addition to your own, original ones. Stay connected with fellow BAW participants by including the hashtags #BrainWeek and #BrainAwarenessWeek in your posts.

Sample Tweets


Helpful hint: Tweets with photos do best. Consider using a photo from your event or a photo of the event poster.


Brain Awareness Week has its very own Facebook page; check us out for posting ideas or to share one of ours. We highlight event ideas, free materials, ways to get involved, and news about the brain.

Sample Posts

Helpful hints: Unlike Twitter, on Facebook you aren’t limited to 140 characters to relay your message. While this gives you some added room to describe your event, for example, don’t make your post too long! Lengthy paragraphs can look overwhelming and run the risk of being cut off in the newsfeed display.

Use eye-catching photos and videos to draw people to your post.

Be sure to respond to comments on your post–people value interaction on Facebook.


Don’t have your own video to share? Use ours! We created a short video that explains Brain Awareness Week and encourages people to get involved. The video is also available in French, Spanish, and Portuguese

Helpful hint: The Dana Foundation YouTube channel houses hundreds of brain-themed videos, from recordings of our own events, to expert talks on more than 85 topics. These videos are easy to share on your own social media directly from YouTube.
