Support Groups

Our Circle of Friends support groups provide educational and emotional support in a positive environment for people living with epilepsy and their families. They are led by trained volunteers who are dedicated to epilepsy support. To explore a leadership role, please email Wendy at caremanager@epilepsycolorado.org or call us at 303-377-9774 or 888-378-9779.

We recommend contacting group leaders directly for information on the group you want to attend to confirm details.
