Support Group Meetings

Having epilepsy or caring for someone with epilepsy can be challenging. Sometimes the practical problems of daily living - insurance, jobs, medical care - can be overwhelming. It helps to have someone to talk to that understands what you are going through. Epilepsy support groups are designed to provide peer support, information sharing, and discussion of common interests. They may also include presentations by professionals on topics of interest. Epilepsy support groups can be:

  • A place to talk to others with similar interests
  • A forum to give and receive information about epilepsy and treatments
  • A place to stay informed about the latest legislation, research, and resources

The groups listed here are open to the public and to anyone affected by epilepsy. The support groups are not intended to furnish medical or professional advice.  The views or opinions expressed at these support groups are not necessarily reflective of the views of the Epilepsy Foundation Central & South Texas (EFCST). 

For more information about meetings or to be added to the reminder list please contact Elizabeth Ortiz at, or by phone at (210) 653-5353, toll free (888) 606-5353. To download a PDF* copy of the support group schedules, please click on the name of the desired group listed to the right.
