Support Groups

Out of an abundance of caution and to maintain social distance in the next 8 weeks, we will be cancelling all in person support groups.

During this time we will be looking into different avenues to connect with you through other venues.

Try out the forums and chat at epilepsy.com. Share good news and support each other on the Epilepsy Foundation Texas’ social media.

We hope to get back together in person starting in June. Be sure to look for communication from your support group leader.

Discovering that you aren’t alone is one of the most important experiences that some people affected by epilepsy have. Support groups introduce you to others who understand and share your experience and give you a forum for learning about resources, exploring options, and making new friends.
