Mental Health, Epilepsy and Me: Charlotte's Story

Spotlight on Mental Health. Our Young Supporter, Charlotte shares her story, highlighting how she felt incredibly low when diagnosed with epilepsy and struggled at school. Encouraged to seek support by her mum, Charlotte has now received the support she needed and wants to share her story to inspire others to do the same. 


Interested in joining our Young Supporter Network, like Charlotte? This is something new for us and we are really excited to be forming a network of young people, living with epilepsy, who will engage and participate with Young Epilepsy in different ways! As a member of the network you will be contacted from time to time to be updated on what Young Epilepsy is up-to, as well as to ask for your views, opinions, and advice, on a range of topics that affect children and young people with epilepsy. Find out more information about becoming a young supporter here. 

Join The Hub, our space to talk about all things epilepsy. Whether you are a young person living with epilepsy, or a parent, this is the space for you. If you feel like you need some support with your mental health, there are people who can help here.
