Angelini Pharma's commitment in Brain Health

Brain health is a global health priority with mental health and neurological disorders added to the list of priority non-communicable diseases by leading health organizations and experts.

According to World Health Organization, "Good brain health is a state in which every individual can realize their own abilities and optimize their cognitive, emotional, psychological and behavioral functioning to cope with life situations".

The European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) estimates that a minimum of 1 in 3 people will experience a brain disorder during their lifetime. Stigma and discrimination are still the main causes of the marginalization of people with mental and neurological disorders in schools, in the workplace, and in society

For over 50 years, Angelini Pharma has been committed to improving the management and quality of life of patients with mental health problems and, more recently, those with neurological disorders, bringing both of these areas together under the single umbrella of Brain Health. And it does this not only by seeking new solutions and investing in research, but also by fighting through correct information the false myths, prejudices and taboos that still weigh upon those suffering from these illnesses.

A first important step towards people with these diseases and their caregivers is the launch of the "With You in Mind" Manifesto, with which the company aims to break down the stigma of which they are often victims.


It’s all in your head, they say, and they’re not wrong.
The key to unlocking your full potential, to balancing love, happiness, emotions,healthy relationships and the unexpected turns life can take, rests on your shoulders.
With all this weighing us down, we tend to fall behind on our goals,to take one step back from the people we care about and the people who care about us.
There is a better way, it starts with one step in another direction.
Reaching out, opening up.
Asking for help, and sharing your journey with someone you trust.
Someone who always has your health at heart.
Someone who knows the best investment they can make is in you,investing in your health and working beside you every step of the way.
We want to be the one you can always turn to, to always be there for you.
No matter where you are in your journey (or where we are in ours).
Because we believe that the only way to move forward as a society,is to ensure that no one feels left behind.

But Angelini Pharma's committment does not end there: with the launch of the first positioning video on the therapeutic area of Brain Health, the company wants to interweave the sensitive and emotional storytelling of its core therapeutic areas with the positive impact it is committed to having in society. The video, through three fictional stories, tells the general public about the diseases for which Angelini Pharma wants to make a difference globally (schizophrenia-epilepsy-depression).

Angelini Pharma
Every step closer, 
with you in mind.
