Overshare Seizure First Aid
Start a ripple. Let’s create a wave. 🌊 Make sure your social network knows what to do if someone is having a seizure. When someone knows Seizure First Aid, the more likely they will turn to help.
Share about Epilepsy.
Share with your friends about epilepsy. Make sure they know that anyone can have a seizure. Any time. Anywhere. Let them know that during your lifetime, 1 in 10 people will have a seizure, and 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy. Share a fact about epilepsy that is true or personal for you.

Put the brain front and center.
It’s important to link epilepsy to the brain. Understanding where epilepsy comes from — the brain — can help combat myths and misinformation. Focusing on the brain can also help affirm our uniqueness and our strengths as we live with and overcome the challenges of epilepsy. Our brains are our common ground. Let’s talk about the brain as a way to talk about epilepsy.
Create your own unique Brain Art.
Create your own unique Brain Art to END EPILEPSY and share it with a message at EndEpilepsy.org/BrainArt. Your brain is completely unique. So is your Brain Art. Your Brain Art will help bring epilepsy out of the shadows, spread awareness, and inspire others to help END EPILEPSY.
