Epilepsy Management
Epilepsy Management
Managing epilepsy often involves more than just managing seizures. Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan helps people with epilepsy and their families manage the following and more:

  • seizures
  • treatment side effects
  • access to healthcare services
  • lack of health insurance
  • employment
  • transportation
  • school issues
  • depression, stress, and fear
  • social isolation
  • stigma
  • memory and thinking problems

This is accomplished through a variety of services, including the following:
Here for You Helpline – face-to-face, phone, or email consultation to help people with epilepsy and family members learn more about epilepsy and its management
Learn & Share Conference Calls – monthly conference calls featuring expert speakers and sharing of ideas on a variety of epilepsy-related topics
Wellness & Epilepsy Conference – annual conference featuring a keynote speaker, health fair, networking reception, and expert-led educational sessions on wellness and epilepsy management
