Support & Networking Groups

When epilepsy is diagnosed, it affects the whole family. Sometimes the practical problems of daily living – from insurance, to jobs, to medical care – may seem overwhelming. At other times, it helps just to talk to people who understand what its like to live with epilepsy.

Community Education & Training Program

Many people in the community do not know how to recognize or respond to seizures. EFAK will provide education and training to groups of any size in the community. Most education can be done online or by providing materials about epilepsy and seizure response. However, if the group would prefer an in-person training, EFAK will work hard to find a local representative to give the training in-person at no cost.

Kids Crew

The Epilepsy Foundation thinks that kids have big hearts and are able to do amazing things. We created the Kids Crew with three areas in mind where we believe you can excel in your journey with epilepsy.

  1. Creating epilepsy awareness to help educate family, friends, and your community.
  2. Sharing your stories so that others can learn from your experiences.
  3. Participating in Lemonade for Livy, the Purple Pumpkin Project, and local walks.

The program is free to join and is for kids ages 14 and under of all abilities. If you don’t have epilepsy, we still want you to join. Often, siblings, friends, and relatives of those with epilepsy are the best advocates. We are looking for those who want to learn, spread awareness, and make a difference. And have fun, too!!
