Please note that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all BC Epilepsy Society In-Person Support Groups, including the BCES YA Circle have been cancelled and have been replaced with online support groups. For information on our online support groups, please click here.
Imagine a circle of people going through similar experiences as you, who listen to what you have to say and hear the very best in you, even when you may not be able to find it in yourself.
Imagine a circle of people who not only hear your words, but also hear your voice, your emotions and your energy.
Imagine a circle of supporters who want nothing more to lift you up and help you in your time of need.
This is what the BCES YA Circle is all about.
As a young adult living with epilepsy, you may be concerned about how epilepsy will affect your life or fear that you are dealing with epilepsy alone or feel as though you are the only person living with epilepsy. At the BCES YA Circle, each person's pain, issues or concerns are recognized and validated.
Sharing your experiences during the BCES YA Circle and learning from others will help put your mind at ease because the more you learn about epilepsy and how to cope with it, the less that epilepsy will be a huge concern in your life.
Listening to others share their experiences during the BCES YA Circle will introduce you to new possibilities of behaving during and dealing with various situations related to epilepsy because so much wisdom can be found from others.
