Epilepsy ACT provides responsive information and education services to community organisations, health and welfare groups, businesses, education providers, students and any other group where a need is identified.
Education and support programs are conducted in schools providing students with a more enlightened attitude towards epilepsy, and informing teachers of the signs, treatment and management of the many different types of seizures.
