Self-Care & Emotional Wellbeing for parents of children with epilepsy - with Dr. Brian McClean

Tuesday, May 18, 2021

As part of our activities in the lead up to National Epilepsy Week, we are delighted to offer this special event for parents of children with epilepsy in the North-East & North-West.

Epilepsy is a condition that can affect the entire family; particularly when the condition is uncontrolled. For parents of children with epilepsy, this can be an extremely stressful time and one that can impact on the wellbeing of parents as they aim to care for their child with a long-term condition. Even when the condition is controlled, this stress and worry can remain for many parents.

This is why we have organised this special event specifically for parents of children with epilepsy living in the North-East & North-West. The event will focus on parent's needs and will be a platform for you to share and explore some of the challenging emotions that can be experienced as a parent of a child with epilepsy alongside other parents in similar circumstances.

We are delighted to be joined by Dr. Brian McClean who is a Clinical Psychologist and brings a wealth of experience in the fields of wellbeing & emotional intelligence to this event. Our local Community Resource Officers for the North-East & North-West, Mary Baker & Agnes Mooney will also be on hand to let you know how we can support you and your child.

We look forward to welcoming you on the night!
