Stay. Safe. Side.
Two common questions people have about seizures are “What should I do if I see someone have a seizure?” and “What should I tell others to do if I have a seizure?”
Feeling helpless watching a loved one, friend, even a stranger, have a seizure is difficult.
Most seizures are not a medical emergency and require simple first aid responses.
We encourage people living with epilepsy to disclose their seizures to those who have the potential to witness them and explain appropriate seizure first aid with your friends, family, school or co-workers.
