Our Vision: West Australians with epilepsy living without fear and discrimination
We are committed to providing support to improve the quality of life of people with epilepsy and increase community awareness of the condition.
Epilepsy is a disorder of the brain functioning that takes the form of recurring seizures
It is actually the most common serious neurological condition in the world, affecting 1-2% of the population - that's about 65 million worldwide. In WA, about 24,500 people are living with the condition, with most people controlling their seizures with medication.
Epilepsy can occur at any age and may be the result of many factors including head injuries, brain infections, strokes or heredity.
So many people build productive lives in spite of their epilepsy, yet there is still a stigma attached to it and many people with epilepsy experience discrimination in their workplace, at school or in their social activities.
Epilepsy WA is seeking to change that!
Epilepsy WA is raising funds so we can better support people living with Epilepsy.
