24/7 Help

Support is only a phone call or email away.  If you, a loved one or friend are feeling down or depressed, or have thoughts of suicide, it's critical to get help right away. You are not alone! Here are a few ways to get help.

  • Call your health care provider and make sure they know how you feel. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
  • If you don't have a health care provider, seek help from your local emergency department.
  • Call our Epilepsy & Seizure Helpline at 1-800-332-1000, to speak with a trained information specialist. They can connect you with emergency help and help you find other resources.
