Living with epilepsy

Personal stories of people affected by epilepsy

Epilepsy Scotland works continuously to ensure that we raise awareness of epilepsy. Influencing attitudes helps us to fight discrimination and the social stigma associated with epilepsy. To achieve this goal we involve people with epilepsy and together we inform public opinion, educate the media and influence government policies.  If you would like to share your story about epilepsy please contact: enquiries@epilepsyscotland.org.uk
