About the Epilepsy Online Support Groups
Epilepsy Ireland's new Online Support Groups service was launched in October 2012. The service allows people to receive confidential, non-judgemental emotional & practical support from other participants who are going through similar experiences. The service is free and aims to bring people together to talk, share experiences and exchange information.
The sessions are facilitated by one or more members of the Epilepsy Ireland service staff team. At present, meetings will take place weekly. Times and days may change from week to week to ensure that everyone who wants to take part has a chance to do so. Occasionally groups will take place during the day time, but most sessions will be in the evenings.
To start with, sessions will be for people with epilepsy living anywhere in the country over the age of 18 only (although we hope to add groups for family members and for teenagers with epilepsy in future). Each session opens and closes at a specified time and is attended by up to 10 users of the service. A session will last for 90 minutes.
To take part, you must register for the service and accept the Terms of Service and support group ground rules. Once you've registered, we'll email you every time that a new group is set up and send a reminder on the morning of the group. Details will also be posted here and on our Facebook page. Contact us at email@example.com if you have any queries about the online support groups.
