Many Ways to Help...

See our new Visitor's Voice page for actual contributions from Silver Ribbon Coalition website visitors!


Silver Ribbon Products


The distribution of Silver Ribbon products promotes public awareness of the need for support of people with brain disorders and disabilities.  Their purchase raises funds for the Campaign's efforts and for brain disorder and disability organizations.  NARSAD Artworks, which distributes Silver Ribbon products, is a 501 (c)3, non-profit organization.  Any profits over operating costs generated by the sale of Silver Ribbon products flow to NARSAD: The Mental Health Research Association, and to other brain disorder and disability organizations.  For instance, if a person whose main interest is Alzheimer's disorder buys Silver Ribbons from NARSAD Artworks, an Alzheimer's organization will receive 10% of such sales.  Additionally, many organizations, such as National Alliance on Mental Illness and National Mental Health Association, purchase large quantities of products at up to a 50% discount.

  • Give a basket of Silver Ribbons to your neurologist, neuropsychiatrist, neurosurgeon, psychiatrist, psychologist, rehabilitation clinic, or other associated practitioner.

  • Get your support and advocacy organization involved!  Have them sell or give out personalized Silver Ribbon products at conferences and functions.

  • Sell Silver Ribbon products at town fairs, markets, or local stores as a fundraiser and publicity-tool for your organization.

  • Hand out Silver Ribbons to neighbors, friends, members of your religion, hairdressers, grocers, and even strangers.

  • Publicize the Silver Ribbon in local community or Homeowner Association newsletters or other forums of public news.

Print and Distribute the Silver Ribbon Brochure


You can view or download the Silver Ribbon Campaign for the Brain brochure by clicking on the images to the right.  Print as many copies as you like at your local copy store.  Print the two pages back to back on a single sheet; the design lets you then tri-fold it.

This is an Adobe Acrobat PDF file which can be viewed in Acrobat Reader.  The reader is available for free here.

Plan a Silver Ribbon Event


Organizing and hosting a Silver Ribbon event is an exciting way to help further the cause of the Silver Ribbon Campaign for the Brain.  Events provide opportunities to:  promote awareness about brain disorders and disabilities through the publicity they generate, educate the public through symposiums, literature, organizations' publicity, and raise funds for research, advocacy, and support through, for example, ticket sales, donations, tribute journals, and auctions.

  • Contact us for advice on organizing a NARSAD Silver Ribbon Dinner, Art Auction, or Symposium; a Silver Ribbon Golf Tournament; or a Brain Imaging Center Dinner.

  • Contact us if you have other ideas for Silver Ribbon Events or you are looking for suggestions.

The 2006 Silver Ribbon Scientific Symposium was held at UCLA's Royce Hall
