Project UPLIFT (Using Practice and Learning to Increase Favourable Thoughts) is an 8-week program that uses cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness to teach people living with epilepsy a valuable skill set that may reduce depression, and improve quality of life in people living with epilepsy.
Benefits of Project UPLIFT:

Project UPLIFT sessions are facilitated over the Internet by a trained facilitator and a mental health professional, one of whom lives with epilepsy. The BC Epilepsy Society is proud to have the only trained Project UPLIFT facilitator in the entire province on its staff.
