We run regular community education sessions, have an involvement in seizure disorder clinics in major hospitals and run individual and group counselling sessions as required. We provide a state wide service and run two camps . One for families for children with epilepsy under the age of 18 . The other for people 18 plus who have epilepsy. We have support groups at some locations in Victoria that run social and recreation activities.
