Young adulthood can be a challenging time for those living with epilepsy. People living with the condition can be facing exams; experiencing increased independence for the first time; starting out in their careers; or building new relationships.
The natural stresses, anxiety, expectations and excitement that this can bring, can have a knock-on effect on a person’s epilepsy. This is why we offer this special online event for Young Adults.
The event allows attendees to meet with others of a similar age who are living with epilepsy and allows them to discuss their epilepsy and any new challenges that they may be experiencing as a result of young adulthood. It also allows attendees to hear from others who are also navigating or have already navigated these challenges and learn from these shared experiences.
The meet-up will be facilitated by our Community Resource Officer Pam O'Brien, who will be on hand to provide general information and support regarding epilepsy. The sessions are designed to be casual, informal affairs and the primary aim is to help connect young people with epilepsy with others living with the condition.
At this special online meet-up, you’ll meet with others of a similar age who are living with epilepsy. You will have an opportunity to discuss how you are getting on with your condition and can discuss any challenges or experiences you may have on various aspects of young adulthood – and hear about and learn from the experiences of others.
If you have any questions about this event, please call Pam on 085 876 6627. Otherwise, see below for further details on this event and how to register.
