In this section you can find out about the experience of epilepsy in young people by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 41 young people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, seizures, treatments and impact on school, work and friendships. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.
