Individual Peer Support
Get connected to someone in a similar situation - whether you are a person with epilepsy or a parent of a child with epilepsy. If you are looking for support, or are interested in providing support to someone else, contact us.
We offer a monthly Adult Support Group meeting, facilitated by our Counsellor. Parent support is on an individual basis. Please contact us if you are interested in attending one of our support groups or wish to . A brief listing of meeting dates is available on the first page of the latest EEA Newsletter.
Individual Referral, Support and Advocacy
Individuals may find themselves in a situation where they need information, support and at times, an advocate. Contact us to meet with a staff person for assistance in completing AISH applications, housing subsidy applications, dealing with Human Rights issues and information on other social assistance needs.
We also have a Counsellor available for individual sessions. Members may access this service by contacting the office to make an appointment.
Social and Recreational Programs
The Association offers numerous monthly opportunities for members to participate in social, recreational and learning opportunities. Stay up to date by viewing our Calendar of Events or reading our Newsletter.
KIDS ON THE BLOCK - TEACHING CHILDREN ABOUT EPILEPSY ONE SCHOOL AT A TIME
Our office remains open at this time. However, we have placed a short-term freeze on all in-person events that are routinely offered by us. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the Federal, Provincial and Municipal Governments which are evolving. The well-being of our members, employees, friends and families is of the deepest concern to us.
Even though these are trying times and many of our programs are suspended a telephone call to us will be returned within 24 (working day) hours.
The High Level Bridge will be lit in purple to commemorate the official 60th Anniversary of the Edmonton Epilepsy Association on June 7th, 2020. Our 60th Anniversary Gala will be held in the fall.
