welcome to our website

The goal of the Epilepsy Society of NW Florida is to raise awareness and to stop discrimination against people with epilepsy. The Epilepsy Society was founded in 1973 by a group of volunteers interested in helping persons with epilepsy through diagnosis, treatment, education and social services, so that they may achieve their full potential. We strive to provide information and support to those caring for loved ones with epilepsy. When a person has epilepsy, the whole family experiences it.

Educating the community about epilepsy is an important part of our responsibilities. It includes going to schools, police departments, health fairs, etc. to teach people what epilepsy is and the proper first aid for seizures. We also work to prevent traumatic brain injury and to help people better recognize, respond, and recover if a TBI occurs.

As a non-profit corporation in the State of Florida, the Epilepsy Society is registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization and is also registered through Chapter 496, Florida Statutes, and the Solicitation of Contributions Act.

 
our mission
“The mission of the Epilepsy Society of Northwest Florida is to advocate for persons with seizure disorders, their families, friends, and caregivers. We will inspire respect within our community by breaking down barriers and myths about seizures through comprehensive
outreach and education programs. We will work to reduce the incidence of traumatic brain injury through extensive prevention programs.”
