Epilepsy can be an isolating condition without the support of others, but we believe that no one should have to face epilepsy alone. Connect Groups are an easy way to meet people affected by epilepsy and share experiences in a safe and supportive environment. The structure and intent of Connect Groups vary by location to meet the needs of that community. Sometimes these epilepsy support group meetings have a set topic, while others are an open discussion. Occasionally, we’ll be joined by guest speakers sharing about a subject specific to living with epilepsy.
We feel it’s important to create a place of safety and trust, so we ask that you please follow these Connect Group guidelines.
