An online community can be a good source of information and discussion where members give suggestions according to their experiences or collaborate. These communities are often a good way to find out about the latest happenings and events.

Epilepsy in Memoriam – you are not alone
Epilepsy Action Australia has created a new Facebook page called “Epilepsy in Memoriam – you are not alone” dedicated to family and friends who have lost someone dear as a result of epilepsy – to provide an opportunity to honour their loved one as well as connect with others who may have gone or be going through a similar experience.

Ted-E-Bear Connection by Epilepsy Action Australia
We have a very special program that brings smiles to the faces of young children affected by epilepsy, along with vital support and information for their families. Our vision is that we can provide a Ted-E-Bear to any child whose life is touched by epilepsy – sometimes this will be a child who is newly diagnosed and other times it will be for a small child who has a parent with epilepsy.
You can also follow all the Ted-E-Bear’s that have been adopted by joining our Facebook page dedicated to Ted-E-Bear Connection by Epilepsy Action Australia.
We also have some more specialised pages for different age groups. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Groups in collaboration with us
Epilepsy Action Australia has joined forces with MyEpilepsyTeam to bring you an online community for people living with epilepsy.
MyEpilepsyTeam.com is the social network for people living with epilepsy. We believe that if you have been diagnosed with epilepsy, it should be easy to connect with others who can share their daily experiences, provide emotional support, and practical insights.
