Our support groups provide knowledge and understanding as well as opportunities to share knowledge and resources in a confidential setting.

Group support is an important resource for anyone living with a chronic illness. Support groups are led by either trained professionals or peers with extensive personal experience coping with epilepsy and its impact on families and caregivers.

Having epilepsy or caring for someone with epilepsy can be very challenging. Things that are often taken for granted–driving, access to medical care, working, learning, building relationshipscan be compromised. A support group gives individuals a place to talk about these issues with others who share in this experience and understand what support is needed. It is also a place for information exchange and resource sharing. Our support groups are all virtual, making it easy to join in from anywhere.
