250, 000 Australians have epilepsy. That’s 1% of the population. Surprised? So were we! What’s more, many of those are children, and yet the educational materials geared towards kids are very limited - enter the Cheeky Neurons!
Nix and Nellie are neurons. They’re very curious and a little bit cheeky, but most of all, they want to understand the brain – especially what happens in the brains of those who have epilepsy, so they can help all their friends understand epilepsy too!
Speaking of friends, we are thrilled to announce that Patton’d Studios has joined the Cheeky Neurons family (and they have joined ours). We will be helping Jo, Nix and Nellie create some fun new visual media to help them as they continue to break down barriers and stigmas that portray epilepsy as a scary topic – which it isn’t really.
“Having everyday conversations about conditions like epilepsy is the first step to increasing understanding and reducing stigma. Everyone who attends our workshops takes home a cheeky little character that helps to do just that!”
– Jo Adams, Founder of The Cheeky Neurons
