Support Groups

 

We all need a little help from time to time. Having seizures or caring for a loved one with epilepsy can be challenging. Why not join a group and learn from others' experiences and share your own thoughts. HeadWay offers support groups and educational workshops. You can find out more about any of these groups or register for one by calling (250) 475-6677 or by e-mail.
