                It’s Epilepsy Awareness Month! The National Youth Council is excited to celebrate this month by launching our brand new blog. We will be sharing our stories and answering questions that youth and young adults have about epilepsy. If there is anything you would like to learn about, or anything you would like to share, we would love to hear from you. This blog is a platform for everyone to come together and be united by our experiences and our passions. Please email us at about submitting to the blog!

                For some, the word “epilepsy” is something to be feared. It is something that must be treated with caution or even ignored. As Epilepsy Awareness Month begins, that is something we must change. Epilepsy can be scary and it can be difficult to manage, but it can also be something to take pride in and embrace. It can help us put things in perspective, be grateful for all that we have, and learn to accept ourselves in new ways.

                This month, let’s go beyond spreading awareness. This month, let’s celebrate!
