BC Epilepsy Society support groups

The BC Epilepsy Society Fall 2007 newsletter announces adult support groups throughout the province.

"We offer opportunities for people living with epilepsy and their families and friends to get better connected and strengthen their support networks. People come together and talk about their issues and share experiences to better understand how to access services and resources and live a better life with epilepsy. Topics cover driving, parenting, medications and anything else that participants need help with."

To join one of the following groups or to start a new support group in your area, contact Elvira or Kathryn at the BC Epilepsy Society office. Phone 604-875-6704 or toll free: 1-866-EPILEPSY (374-5377). Visit the website at http://www.bcepilepsy.com/programs_and_services/Self_Help_Groups.aspx.
