"The history of epilepsy can be summarised as 4.000 years of ignorance, superstition and stigma, followed by 100 years of knowledge, superstition and stigma"

We hope that you will spend just a few minutes finding out a little more about epilepsy, the truth behind the myths, and how to respond if you see someone having a seizure.
