The purpose of National Epilepsy Awareness Month is to:

 

  • Dispel common myths about the disorder
  • Promote public awareness and understanding of the condition
  • Inform people with seizure disorders and their families about service programs and informational resources available nationally and in their local areas
  • Educate the public about the symptoms of epilepsy and seizure disorders to help eliminate the stigma unjustly associated with the condition

A great resource is TEAM EPILEPSY ... A global community dedicated to those living with epilepsy and to bringing new medicines to market that may improve people's lives.
