Mental Health Awareness Month
Saturday, May 1, 2021 - Monday, May 31, 2021
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, an opportunity for the epilepsy community to raise awareness and challenge stigma about mental health concerns specific to people with epilepsy.
One-third of people with epilepsy suffer from some form of psychiatric disorder, of which anxiety and depression are the most common.
To learn more about epilepsy and mental health, watch or listen to the Seizing Life episode “Epilepsy and Mental Health: What You Should Know featuring Dr. Andres Kanner” or the webinar “Anxiety and Depression Associated with Epilepsy.”
