Children and young people with epilepsy are able to have fulfilling lives.

The information within the family section of the PENSNW website has been created for patients with epilepsy and their family members.

The resources  include information on diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy, safety, first aid, lifestyle, coping with epilepsy, and dealing with emotions. There are also specific resources for adolescents and young adults with epilepsy.
