Our Living with epilepsy workshop in Truro is for people with epilepsy their families, friends, and carers, as well as professionals. The event aims to impact on the participants psychological wellbeing, quality of life, knowledge, skills and confidence for self-management.

Of the 600,000 people living with epilepsy in the UK, around 288,000 are still experiencing seizures. We estimate that with better treatment 108,000 more people could become seizure free. These events support and encourage people whose seizures are not controlled to ask for better treatment and encourage increased self-management.
