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.
If you would like to attend one of our in-house epilepsy workshops please see our Community Education page.
