For many people with epilepsy, their student years living with the condition can bring about new challenges.  

Often when a young person transitions into adulthood, this can mean changes in medication, dosage changes and breakthrough seizures. This can be a difficult time for young people living with the condition as they come to terms with living with epilepsy.  This can have an impact on memory which is a further challenge for those who may be preparing for exams in school or college. 

At this session, we will be joined by Principal Clinical Psychologist, Dr. Brian McClean who will be on hand to discuss vital memory and study tips with all those in attendance. This will also be interlinked with study skills that can help alleviate some of the stress and challenges faces young people with epilepsy. 

There will also be an opportunity for questions and answers as part of this event.

If you have any questions about this event, please email our Community Resource Officer Agnieszka Polak on, otherwise, if you’re interested in joining us on the night, see details below on how to register.

We look forward to welcoming all members of the epilepsy community on the night!
