We are grateful to the community support that we are receiving to run this program. We started UPLIFT in February 2021 and have helped 16 individuals to date.
Our free program – UPLIFT (Using Practice and Learning to Increase Favourable Thoughts) – is a proven mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy program that improves depression, and overall psychological quality of life.
This group is designed for individuals living with epilepsy in addition to caregivers.
Small groups of individuals 18 years and older meet virtually for 1 hour over an 8-week period.
Participants will receive a manual ahead of time, and topics will include coping strategies, relaxation, monitoring thought-patterns, and how to prevent future low-moods.
A pilot project found that UPLIFT participants had improved depression, anxiety, and psychological quality of life – even a full year after they finished the program.
