National Epilepsy Week is here! 

Today marks the beginning of National Epilepsy Week 2020 (18 -24 May) and this year's theme is 'More Than Seizures'

We know that epilepsy is more than just a seizure, it can affect young people in so many other ways and we're joining with other epilepsy charities across the UK to raise awareness of these challenges.

Each day on social media we'll be focusing on different areas of people's lives that can be affected by epilepsy. This includes growing up, wellbeing, education, socialising, family and the impact of support from epilepsy nurses.

Some of our fantastic Young Reps will be doing an Instagram takeover and we'll be sharing insights from young people with epilepsy from around the country, as well as others who support them. We'll also be posting new videos and support information on The Channel and sharing some key research findings.

Help us to raise awareness this National Epilepsy Week!  Please share Young Epilepsy's posts on social media or join the conversation using the hashtags #EpilepsyWeek and #MoreThanSeizures.
