Why Talk About Epilepsy?

Because epilepsy is a chronic medical condition that affects between 1-3.5% of the population. That’s at least 74million worldwide. Many people are still very uneducated regarding epilepsy, for instance not realising that:

  • There are over 60 different types of seizures
  • Even if seizures are controlled, patients still suffer from the effects of medication
  • Mental health issues are common in those with epilepsy
  • Lifestyle restrictions due to epilepsy can be huge

We are here to decrease the loneliness felt by those affected by epilepsy – whether you be in the UK, EMEA, APAC, Americas or anywhere else.

So many people are affected or have a family member/friend/colleague who is affected by epilepsy. Much of the time however people don’t even know that they have any connection with epilepsy; because the person directly affected can be afraid to speak up.

Let’s help turn this around.
