Chapter 13 Support Groups
Section 1: Support Groups
Subsection I: Epilepsy
The Epilepsy Association of Oklahoma provides knowledge and information about the causes and treatments of epilepsy and the many different types of seizures; and provides information and guidance to those with epilepsy, their families and friends.
The Epilepsy Foundation works to ensure that people with seizures are able to participate in all life experiences; and to prevent, control and cure epilepsy through research, education, advocacy and services.
Epilepsy is a medical condition that produces seizures affecting a variety of mental and physical functions. It's also called a seizure disorder. A seizure is caused by a brief, strong surge of electrical activity involving part or all of the brain. When a person has two or more seizures without a clear cause (e.g., alcohol withdrawal), it's considered to be epilepsy.
They have an on-line resource about epilepsy and how to live with it.
