We have created a series of seven short videos for young people with epilepsy. Scroll down the page to access all the videos below. The videos cover the following:
- What is epilepsy and what causes it?
- What are seizures and seizure triggers?
- Epilepsy Investigations
- Epilepsy Medications
- Seizure Safety
- Moving on to Adult Healthcare Services
The videos refer to a document called the Personal Epilepsy Profile which you can download and use to capture important information about your epilepsy diagnosis. The Living Well with Epilepsy video is also included below and covers important information for young people on how to stay safe and live well with epilepsy.
The aim of the following videos is to provide education for young people living with epilepsy.
The advice in these videos is general advice only and does not take into account individual medical conditions or needs.
Further clarification of your individual needs should be sought from your treating Doctor.
