Quick Reference to FAQ’s

Project UPLIFT

What is Project UPLIFT for Epilepsy? Project UPLIFT (Using Practice and Learning to Increase Favorable Thoughts) is a phone-based program designed to prevent or reduce depression. Depression is commonly experienced in people with epilepsy and can impact the quality of life.

How does UPLIFT work? UPLIFT provides skills through group phone delivery of a program to help treat or prevent depression. UPLIFT is based on mindfulness and cognitive therapy, two techniques proven to help prevent and manage symptoms of depression. Often depression leads to dwelling on the past or accepting negative thoughts that impact mood. UPLIFT teaches people with epilepsy to notice:

·         How their thoughts affect their mood
·         How to let go of problem thoughts
·         How to pay attention to the present moment

Access to transportation is not an issue with UPLIFT because it is delivered directly to their home. This also lowers the anxiety of having a seizure in public. There is no fear in seeking support for depression since UPLIFT is confidential. The program includes eight group sessions with exercises at home between sessions.  Each telephone session lasts about one hour.
