Share your story

Every person affected by epilepsy has a unique story to tell. We want to hear from you.

3 reasons why you should share your story:

  • Sharing can help break the stigma - Documenting your own experiences of epilepsy and how it has impacted your life is incredibly powerful and provides a great opportunity to raise awareness, challenge perceptions and influence our work
  • You could change someone’s life - Your story has the potential to reach others who could be in a similar situation to you. Often those living with epilepsy feel alone with their condition, hearing similar stories can help break this attitude
  • Tackle the misconceptions - There are so many myths and misconceptions surrounding epilepsy and the more people share their stories, the more awareness and educated others will become

If you would like to share your story, please fill in the form below and one of our Media Team will be in contact to discuss your story and the possible ways you might be able to help. No information you provide will ever be used without your permission.
