Finding a sense of support and community is vital for people living with epilepsy and their families. We offer opportunities to meet others, learn from their experiences, and connect on a personal level.

Circle of Friends Groups occur on a monthly basis with specific meetings for adults, teens, and a group for Spanish speakers. Other social events take place throughout the year for children, teens, and adults.

See a complete list of all upcoming events on our calendar.

Peer Support Program

This free 6-month program partners Mentors and Mentees. Mentors are often people who have lived with epilepsy for a while and who feel comfortable sharing their story. Mentees are usually fairly new to the epilepsy community and are looking for guidance from someone who has had epilepsy for a while.

Contact group leaders directly to inquire about the group you are interested in.

Walk to END EPILEPSY

Join us for the largest epilepsy awareness event in our region. These family-friendly walks are held in Denver, Northern Colorado, the Western Slope, Colorado Springs and Wyoming and are a great way to connect with others. Together we can inspire the community to help end epilepsy.

Volunteer

Our volunteer program engages and empowers volunteers who embody the mission and extend the reach of the Foundation. We have a variety of volunteer opportunities available.

Youth Connection and Leadership Opportunities

Youth living with epilepsy who become involved in leadership can give back to the epilepsy community while having many wonderful opportunities.  Youth who participate in our camps and leadership programs can develop important life skills, gain confidence, become leaders and engage with others who are living with epilepsy.
