SeizureSmart Youth

 Epilepsy New Zealand offers evidence-based online training that can be completed at your own pace. Our programmes increase awareness and understanding of epilepsy in the community, whilst providing the unpinning knowledge of how to support a person living with epilepsy in education, aged care, workplaces, disability, and primary health environments.

We went to ensure that no one living with epilepsy “goes it alone”.
