Local Lifestyle & Wellness Resources
This is a free program designed to support people of all ages to live well with seizures. We connect, educate, and empower people affected by epilepsy in order to inspire them to successfully manage their healthcare and lives. Care management is open to anyone living with epilepsy or their family members.
Preferred Provider Network
The goal of the Preferred Provider Network is to ensure all individuals living with epilepsy and seizure disorders have access to quality, affordable mental health care so that not another moment is lost to seizures.
Our Preferred Provider Network trains mental health clinicians to work effectively with people living with epilepsy and seizures.
The Foundation keeps a database of these therapists and matches clients with a therapist upon request. The Foundation also provides reimbursement of up to $30 per session for the first 8 sessions.

This FREE 8-week virtual skill building group is for adults with epilepsy. Learn how to improve quality of life, gain support and feel better. This program focuses on:
- Education about seizures types and available treatments, the influence of epilepsy on mood, stress, and cognition, and strategies for healthy lifestyle,
- Training and practice using specific strategies to cope with stress and the blues, and
- Personalized goal-setting and support to help you articulate and pursue important life changes.
Project UPLIFT is a free, eight-week, skill-building, phone-based course for adults living with epilepsy using mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
An outcomes study of Project UPLIFT reported decreased depression and lower anxiety/stress in participants, with some reporting fewer seizures.
Project UPLIFT is not a therapy or counseling group, but rather a course that teaches skills to help your daily life with epilepsy.

Wellness & Epilepsy Toolkit
We all need to take care of ourselves — to manage individual health problems and get or stay healthy and happy. This toolkit highlights and explains the the significance of each of the eight dimensions of wellness and the importance of making choices that lead toward a healthy and fulfilling life. This toolkit is provided by the Epilepsy Foundation of America and was created in 2019 by the Wellness Institute.
