Support groups & meet-ups

Epilepsy Queensland's support groups and meet-ups provide an opportunity for people to connect.

We facilitate support groups, social groups and meet-ups for people living with epilepsy and their parents or carers. The forming of groups is dependant on interest from people in a local area or interest and ongoing support of participants. Support groups give people a sense of community and the chance to talk with others who have or have had similar experiences. It also provides an opportunity to establish a better understanding of epilepsy. Please find current meet-up opportunities below.

While face-to-face meetings are suspended due to COVID-19, our support groups have gone online. During this difficult time, our community is more important than ever. Our weekly Zoom catch-ups will include a mix of activities based on interests of the group, conversations about different aspects of living with epilepsy and a chance to share your experiences. We also have Facebook support groups to help you connect.

For information about support groups in your area please call our services team on (07) 3435 5000 or 1300 852 853 (outside Brisbane.)
