Epilepsy Day 26 March - Wear purple to show support

On 26 March its Epilepsy Day so please be a Hero and wear purple to show support. 

"The social consequences of epilepsy are often more difficult to overcome than the seizures themselves." World Health Organization

Epilepsy Australia is the national coalition of Australian Epilepsy Associations raising our voices as one to advance the cause of all Australians living with epilepsy.

Actively delivering counseling, support and information to all who access our services, Epilepsy Australia is committed to raising awareness and understanding of the very real issues faced by those living with epilepsy.
The unpredictable nature of seizures can force people to stay at home, fearful of a seizure occurring in public. Would you know what to do if you saw someone having a seizure?

A goal of Epilepsy Australia is for every household in Australia to be seizure aware.

 

Our challenge is to build on the success of our Seizure First Aid Awareness Campaign where more than 20,000 Seizure First Aid Kits were delivered to households Australia-wide.

 

Help us reach our goal. Download a Seizure First Aid Poster today.
