Programs

 

We provide a range of educational opportunities, programs, and services. We offer programs both nationally and through local Epilepsy Foundations.

At the Epilepsy Foundation, our programs support people living with epilepsy, families, friends, and caregivers. These programs can tackle complex issues like SUDEP support or simply bring joy to children living with epilepsy.

Many of our programs are available through your local Epilepsy Foundation or local partners. These local organizations can offer resources that are tailored for your community. 

If you have any questions about our programs, reach out to your local Foundation or contact our 24/7 Helpline

In addition to these programs, our national office supports:
