Support Groups & Self-Management Programs

Having epilepsy or caring for someone who does can be challenging. When epilepsy is diagnosed, it affects the whole family. Sometimes the practical problems of daily living – from insurance, to jobs, to medical care – may seem overwhelming. At other times, it helps just to talk to people who understand what its like to live with epilepsy.

To register and receive info on how to attend, please contact Shannon at sabdulwahab@efa.org with which group you are interested in.
