This free 6-month program partners adult Mentors and adult Mentees. Mentors are often people who have lived with seizures for a while and who feel comfortable sharing their story. Mentees are looking for guidance and support with the impact of seizures on their life. This program is available to both those who are diagnosed with epilepsy and those with non-epileptic seizures. It is also open to caretakers of those with epilepsy.
