The following presentations were recorded at the 2018 World Stroke Congress in Montréal, Canada, at the Stroke Support Organizations main session organized by Sarah Belson.

Stroke Support Organizations are Non Governmental Organizations (civil society) that address the concerns of stroke survivors and their caregivers by:

• Representing their views, and their families’ views on improved stroke care
• Organizing services and support in the community using trained volunteers with links to professionals
• Raising awareness about stroke and the need for better resources
• Sharing experiences in dealing with problems resulting from stroke
• Providing relevant information to stroke survivors and their caregivers
​• Supporting Government initiatives to help prevent stroke in the first place.
