Do you have questions about seizures or epilepsy?
Do you need help finding resources in your area?
The Epilepsy Foundation’s Helpline is now available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Trained information specialists are now standing by to answer your questions about epilepsy and seizures.
In response to your needs and a recommendation from the Institute of Medicine’s 2012 Report on Epilepsy, the Foundation has expanded this valuable information service so it is now available whenever you need it.
The focus of the Helpline is to provide non-medical help and information on a wealth of topics related to epilepsy, such as:
Providing answers to your general questions about seizures, epilepsy, first aid, or treatment options.
Locating an epilepsy specialist in your area or a local support group.
Connecting you with epilepsy-related financial and legal resources.
Can they give medical advice?
The Helpline does not provide individual medical advice. It is an information and resource helpline.
However, the information provided can help you work with your health care team more effectively, know what questions to ask them, and provide answers or connect you to resources that your health care team may not have.
How do I contact the Helpline?
Spanish (en Espanol) call 1-866-748-8008
I hope you find this helpful. Please give us your feedback so we can continue to improve this service to meet your needs!
