Goals of the Clinic To Community program:
- Provide individuals and their families with information about seizures, seizure first aid and epilepsy.
- Provide individuals and their family with a network of support services to help everyone in the family live well with a diagnosis of epilepsy.
- Reduce the burden of epilepsy on the family, the health care system and the Ontario economy.
For children and teens with epilepsy and their families
Epilepsy Ottawa offers Clinic to Community to teens with epilepsy and families whose children have epilepsy. Whether you’re dealing with a new epilepsy diagnosis, or you feel that your family could use more information about living well with epilepsy, reducing the risks associated with seizures, identifying when a seizure is a medical emergency, or school support, we’d be happy to meet with you.
If you are under 18 and have epilepsy or if you have a child with epilepsy and would like to set up an appointment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the contact form below.
For adults newly diagnosed with epilepsy
Epilepsy Ottawa is running a pilot project of Clinic to Community for adults who have been diagnosed with epilepsy in the last 18 months. Participants in the pilot project will meet with a Clinic to Community Educator (family members and friends are welcome to attend this meeting as well), complete a survey prior to this meeting, and complete a survey one month after the meeting.
If you are 18 or over, have been diagnosed with epilepsy within the last 18 months, and would like to participate in our pilot program, please email email@example.com or complete the contact form below.

Our goal is to eventually expand this program to include any individuals and families living with epilepsy that feel it would benefit them.
