We exist to improve the lives
of everyone affected by epilepsy

For young people

If you’re a teenager with epilepsy, you probably have all sorts of questions about how epilepsy could affect your life. For example, will you be able to go on holiday with friends, go to concerts and clubs and drink alcohol? Or maybe you have a friend, brother or sister who has epilepsy and you just want to understand more about it.

The aim of these webpages is to answer these questions. If you want to find more detailed information, or information on anything else about epilepsy, contact the helpline on 0808 800 5050 or helpline@epilepsy.org.uk or tweet or text.

If you want to talk online to other teenagers with epilepsy, visit the Tea Room. This is for 13 to 19 year olds.

Have a look at  Youth health talk for video clips of young people talking about their experience of epilepsy.
