Epilepsy Community Groups

Building a Community of Hope

Group connections have been shown to be a powerful force in helping people with epilepsy and caregivers. Our SHARE (Support, Hope, Advocacy, Resources, Educate) groups offer an excellent opportunity to connect, share, and learn.

Epilepsy Foundation New England has an ever-evolving series of groups for those of all ages and capabilities. Due to recent circumstances, all of our groups have gone virtual. By doing so, we have been able to increase the number of unique groups offered to over 35 a month. Whether you are looking to learn, find a support group, or be social and hang out with others, there is something for you.

Let us connect you to the right group
