Taking care of your overall wellbeing is a vital part of living with epilepsy. For some people, having information or support can help.
Epilepsy Society's confidential helpline is available for anyone affected by epilepsy. We welcome calls from people with epilepsy, their families and friends, as well as professionals such as doctors, nurses, care workers, teachers and employers.
Many people who contact us say that having someone to talk to, who has epilepsy or knows about epilepsy, can be really helpful and reassuring. It can be an important part of coming to terms with a diagnosis of epilepsy.
