Our stories

At MSWA, we are privileged to support thousands of Western Australians living with neurological conditions.

Our community generously share their stories to inspire others and shine a light on what it is like to live with a neurological condition. Whilst their journeys involve challenges, it is through determination, humour and support that they are living meaningful and positive lives.
