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.
