Today is #BellLetsTalk day. Did you know:

 

  • 1 in 4 people with Epilepsy have depression
  • Although common, mental health issues in people with Epilepsy are not always diagnosed OR treated
  • Improving mental health issues may also improve seizures; improving seizures may also improve mental health 
  • People with Epilepsy have 5 times a greater risk for completed suicide

 

Help us to break the cycle - help us to talk about the link between Epilepsy and depression. Please remember that Epilepsy Durham Region is always here for you to talk. Please see the links below for a resource that may help you today:
