The agency exists because we strongly believe that we can make positive changes and provide a supportive environment for those living with epilepsy and seizure disorders. We believe that we can achieve the support needed through our efforts of public education and awareness. We recognize the need to reduce every kind of isolation or stigma and provide opportunities for people with this condition to stay in the mainstream, learn how to self-advocate, learn what good medical care consists of and what their options are. We feel strongly about giving them opportunities to meet and support one another and achieve an increased level of control of already compromised lives.
