Our Mission

Our mission is to lead the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures, and save lives.

About the Epilepsy Foundation of Indiana

The Epilepsy Foundation of Indiana was created in 2006 to offer education, advocacy and support for all Hoosiers affected by epilepsy. Programs include FREE Seizure Recognition & First Aid trainings, youth & family programs, support groups, a family weekend camp at Center for Courageous Kids, and an anual Indiana Epilepsy Expo. In addition, the Epilepsy Foundation of Indiana has several Community Action Network groups across Indiana - engaging and empowering volunteers to raise awareness and help move our mission forward. Our fundraising events are also designed to raise awareness and educate the public about epilepsy. Annual events include a Gala and the Indiana Epilepsy Walk.
