Discovering My Epilepsy is a support group for children and teens living with epilepsy and their families. Our goal is to help one another understand the many life changes associated with epilepsy. Our Support group meetings provide a safe, secure, and stimulating environment, the opportunity to meet new friends, and create a support network for children with epilepsy, siblings, parents and/or caregivers.
