Welcome to Epilepsy Tasmania
We are a not-for-profit association improving the quality of life and community participation of Tasmanians living with or affected by epilepsy.
Although more than 50 million people around the world have epilepsy, there remains an unfortunate stigma that causes much hurt and frustration.
Epilepsy Tasmania is working to remove this stigma and discrimination by increasing awareness and understanding of epilepsy around our state. Education is one way we do this, so please browse this website, download our resources and phone us if you have any questions left unanswered.
If you’ve been diagnosed with epilepsy or know someone who has – then what we do is all about you. We can help you establish new connections and support systems; communicate better with your medical specialist; arrange first aid training for your workplace, school or community group; and importantly we can be a friend when you need one.
Please – get in touch … join us … be part of our community.
