The Project UPLIFT program is an evidence-based, 8-week program using mindfulness and cognitive behavioural therapy. The program is open to adults (18+) with epilepsy (or their support persons) experiencing stress, anxiety, or depression.
Each group is made up of 5-8 participants who commit to weekly group sessions where they will learn many valuable skills that have been shown to improve depression, psychological well-being, and quality of life in people living with epilepsy. All information shared during the group is confidential and attendance at each session is required.

UPLIFT for Adults with Epilepsy (18+)

UPLIFT is a mindfulness/meditation and cognitive behavioural therapy program that supports people with epilepsy in learning skills to cope with stress through recognizing and changing thoughts and behaviours. Reducing stress is a way to reduce seizures but this is also an opportunity to gain support from hearing others’ stories and talking with people who can understand your experiences.
