This March is National Essential Tremor Awareness month and the National Tremor Foundation is inviting you to get involved! 

Throughout March 2021 the National Tremor Foundation (NTF) will again raise awareness of this little known condition called essential tremor (ET). 

The National Essential Tremor Awareness (NETA) month will see the NTF hold various online meetings via Zoom with the aim of raising awareness, offering interesting discussions, friendly meetups and talks by speakers on essential tremor.


The National Tremor Foundation is a neurological disorder charity which represents over 1 million people in the UK. The NTF aims to provide help, support and advice to all those living with all forms of tremor irrespective of age.

Essential Tremor

Essential tremor is the most common movement disorder. It causes parts of the body to move in an uncontrolled and repetitive manner, most commonly affecting the arms and hands. There are many causes of severe tremor – it is a syndrome rather than a specific condition. There are over one million people with Essential Tremor in Britain and around 250,000 people with the syndrome are severely disabled by their tremor. 


March Essential Tremor Awareness Month or National Essential Tremor Awareness month as it is known in the USA, was started by the International Essential Tremor Foundation (IETF) to raise awareness of essential tremor and has since been growing from strength to strength.
