Epilepsy Support & Education Services, Inc.
"Facilitating the Acceptance of Epilepsy"™
All other organizations work to cure epilepsy, and we hope to get there as well someday, but we believe that all of us with epilepsy still have a life to live while the cure is in the process of being found, so our focus became more of Acceptance. Learning to LIVE our lives WITH EPILEPSY as effectively, and positively as possible!
We are here to Support anyone with Epilepsy and those that have loved ones with Epilepsy or are caregivers of Epileptics, through groups or individual meetings. Our other mission as stated in our name is to Educate people about Epilepsy. Many people are afraid to tell others that they have Epilepsy because they do not want to explain what epilepsy is or make others feel uncomfortable. So we are here to Educate anyone that needs more information about Epilepsy. Also we can come to you and educate a group or a business of what to do should someone was to have a seizure. Unfortunately there are still many myths about epilepsy out there that people still believe.
Epilepsy Support Groups:
This Young Adults / Parent group meets on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of every month at 2202 Menaul Blvd NE, Suite A. We meet from 4-6pm. We encourage the young adult with epilepsy and a family member come to group together.
Open Group: The open group group has moved days they will now be on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6-7:30 pm.
At times we schedule outings rather than support meetings. If you are not on our newsletter list please call the office to see if plans have changed. You can also email us at EpilepsyNM@gmail.com
