Personal Testimonies

Key to increasing public understanding of epilepsy is hearing from those who have direct lived experience of the condition. Throughout the years, our volunteers and others have took to our social media channels and beyond to share their stories and experiences in an effort to increase understanding and awareness - as well as helping others with epilepsy on their journey with the condition. This section highlights **some** of the testimonies that have been received. If you are interested in sharing your story with us, you can see further information on this by visiting the 'Becoming a media volunteer' section of  our website.
