Client and Family Support Groups

Individuals with Epilepsy may experience feelings that they’re alone in their struggles to overcome the stigma associated with Epilepsy. The Agency’s Support Groups allows a way for our client’s and family members to integrate with others who have Epilepsy as well as in the community. The opportunities for them can be endless:  opportunities to gather and learn about different resources; exploring options/choices; networking; and meeting new people.

For more information on the Client and Family support groups, please contact the Community Resource Facilitator, Nena Harper at or call 618-236-2181 at Extension 107.
