Peer Support

The BC Epilepsy Society offers opportunities for individuals living with epilepsy, their families, and friends to get better connected and strengthen their support networks. This includes offering support groups, peer support contacts, and links to other services.

Whether you have epilepsy or know someone close to you who is living with it, you may need help in dealing with the condition. You may also be able to help others coping with epilepsy by sharing your experiences and providing moral support. Epilepsy support groups in BC include:
