Epilepsy Awareness

The Equality Act 2010 covers epilepsy, which is a neurological condition that affects the brain and nervous system. It can be a temporary condition, or it can affect people for their entire lives. It’s important to know that there are over 40 different types of seizures and only some of them are caused by epilepsy, but because of the nature of the condition having an awareness and understanding of what to do if you recognise epilepsy is highly important.

Our course will give you an overview of epilepsy, diagnosis, what a seizure is and how it can affect the brain. We’ll examine some potential seizure triggers and describe what to do when someone has a seizure. Finally, we’ll discuss treatments and give some practical advice on what you can do if you witness someone having a seizure.
