Epilepsy Resource Rooms


Help is Only a Resource Room Away

Epilepsy Research Rooms have been set-up at hospitals and medicals centers throughout Massachusetts & New Hampshire to offer active listening while providing community resources, individualized support, education, and services to help people manage their epilepsy and challenges related to epilepsy. Support is free and open to anyone living with epilepsy and caregivers for people living with epilepsy. Services are provided to children, youth, and adults. Some Resource Rooms may be temporarily remote via Zoom or phone.

Epilepsy resource rooms are staffed by AmeriCorps members. AmeriCorps brings people together to serve communities. AmeriCorps members serve directly with organizations and nonprofts to tackle our nation’s most pressing challenges.
