#SUDEPActionDay2020 - Thank you for raising awareness of SUDEP

SUDEP Action Day 2020 took place on Friday October 23rd. The day aims to raise awareness of Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy and encourages people with epilepsy to know the risks around SUDEP and what they can do to reduce them. 

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to read more about SUDEP and shared our messages across social media on the day. We would also like to thank our colleagues in SUDEP Action for the work they do year-round in raising awareness of this rare but devastating aspect of epilepsy. 

If you missed any of the content we shared on the day, we have listed this below for your information and we would encourage you to take the time to learn more about SUDEP if you have not done so already.

Should you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your local Community Resource Officer to discuss.
