PACES and Project UPLIFT Epilepsy Wellness Programs

Our next 8-week session of PACES will start Thursday, August 5 at 6:30 pm. This program is for adults 18+ living with epilepsy and will be led by a trained epilepsy professional and a peer mentor. Through this program, participants will develop coping and goal-setting strategies that improve overall and specific aspects of quality of life.

Project UPLIFT
This free 8-week program held via Zoom is designed to empower people with epilepsy to improve their own mental health through mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral skills. This group will meet Wednesdays from noon – 1:00 pm, August 4 – September 22.

To learn more or register for either program, email larissa@epilepsycolorado.org or call 303-502-5979. Spaces are limited, so all participants will need to answer questions to determine if the program is a good fit for you.

Seizure Safe Schools

Governor Jared Polis signed HB21-1133: K-12 Seizure Training & Individual Action Plans, aka “Joey’s Law,” into law on May 28, 2021. Starting in November 2021, the law requires at least one staff person at each public school to be trained in the recognition of seizure disorders and seizure first aid.

The Epilepsy Foundation of America has developed on demand virtual training sessions for school personnel and school nurses. We will also provide live virtual training sessions this fall, so stay tuned for more information.
