Support Groups & Socials


Chat n’ Chew’s

Our Chat n’ Chew Support Group will meet 6 times per year (every other month); this will be an opportunity for individuals who have epilepsy, and their families, to meet together to talk, brainstorm, and help each other through shared experiences.  This is a great opportunity to meet new people, see old friends and share experiences; snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Chat ‘n Chews for 2019 will be in January, March, May, July, September, and November.

To be notified of upcoming Support Groups and Socials (including Chat n’ Chews), please fill out the form below.  Please note:  If you’re already on our email list and receive monthly newsletters, you don’t need to subscribe again.


Our Social events are intended for our members and clients who are looking to enjoy a night out in a fun and supportive environment, and individuals are encouraged to invite family, friends, and coworkers to these events (if desired).
