** COVID-19 Update - In line with Federal and State Government recommendations, Epilepsy Tasmania staff are now working from home in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 within Tasmania.
Please be reassured that we are still here — on the phone, on Facebook, on our website, on video chat and on Epilepsy Connect.
Don’t be shy — we have time for you and no issue is too small.
For more information, please contact email@example.com. **
Whether you have epilepsy or care for someone with epilepsy, our free peer support service is an easy and confidential way to speak to others who have been there.
Talking with people who have had similar experiences can help you feel more understood and less alone.
Trained volunteers who have personal experience with epilepsy and are backed by our team of health professionals are available to:
- offer emotional and practical support
- discuss concerns and challenges
- provide a better understanding of what to expect
Please note that Epilepsy Connect is not a medical service and peers are unable to provide medical advice.

Those with epilepsy, their family, friends and carers.
