Epilepsy Support Groups

Valley Children’s Epilepsy Support Group is now offering virtual support groups. Our goal to provide a safe space for families to come together to feel heard, meet others who face the same challenges, create friendships, learn from others living with epilepsy and join together to empower one another. Read about our different support groups and how to sign up.


Why join a support group?

Support groups are an avenue that bring people together who have, or are, experiencing similar situations. These groups provide an opportunity for parents and patients to feel heard and understood. This emotional and moral support often helps to sustain you while you walk through challenges and experience difficulties. In these groups you will gain knowledge, learn new coping strategies and experience encouragement while sharing with others. Why walk through it alone when we can walk through it together?


Parent CONNECT

Designed with parents in mind, Parent CONNECT is a group for parents and caregivers to come together to talk about your experiences and gain feedback from others without judgement or criticism. This group will allow you to walk through life dealing with epilepsy with others who understand where you are in your journey because you are not alone. We will promote acceptance, provide positive support and encourage those affected by seizures.

Teen & Young Adult CONNECT

Teen & Young Adult CONNECT is an opportunity for teens and young adults (13-22) who have been affected by epilepsy to come together to have fun, make new friends and build peer support in a safe supervised environment. This group will provide an encouraging and developmentally appropriate community for teens and young adults to call their own. They will be empowered to learn about epilepsy and themselves, talk with their peers, take an active role in their health, overcome challenges and practice their social skills. At this time, groups will be virtual but upon returning in person, this teen group will include occasional social gatherings.
