Non-Clinical Support Services

Non-Clinical Support Services

Our staff provide non-clinical support services to people living with epilepsy and their loved ones across the province through one-on-one meetings including assistance with finding resources and community services; information on seizure education, safety planning, and epilepsy self-management strategies; and counselling for people living with epilepsy and their loved ones.

We help guide you – whether you are new or well known to us – through diagnosis and life transitions with evidence-based strategies to foster self-sufficiency and resiliency. In other words, we are with you every step of the way.

We also meet with patients and families attending the Neurology Clinics at BC Children’s Hospital (BCCH), Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) and the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre at Surrey Memorial Hospital.

For more information, please contact Deirdre Syms (BCES Executive Director) at or Sonia Ali (BCES Provincial Manager of Programs and Services) at

“We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.”
