The Connecticut Epilepsy Advocate Foundation proudly serves all of the Fifty States in America, along with all of Connecticut's one hundred and sixty-nine cities and towns, in the eight counties of Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex, New London, Litchfield, Hartford, Tolland, and Windham.
Our website has just over twenty pages. with topics like About Us, Testimonials, Support Groups, Information, Medic Alert, Social Security Disability Insurance, Prescriptions, Payments and Donations, and Contact Us, just to name a few, so please take a look at the tabs and scroll around to find the ones that would be most helpful to both you and those you know.
Our organization will interact with people living with Epilepsy to help them cope with this insidious disease in any way possible. If there is something we do not know (and trust me, we do not know it all) we will do our best to find someone who can provide the needed information. Each of us here just wants more people to become "Aware About Epilepsy"
We presently have four Support Groups, in Bristol, Milford, Waterbury, and Stamford. We are looking to launch even more, so if you would like to volunteer to run a Support Group in your area, please let us know, and we can determine if people in your area would benefit from a more local group. (We want the groups to be spread across the state, not too close to one another).
Never facilitated a group before? Don’t worry, we will train you on how to run your group. You will only be donating approximately six hours a month of your time; and you will be making more people "Aware About Epilepsy."

When people cannot afford them we will pay for their Medic Alert bracelets, including membership, and the Advantage Plus Plan, and we forward the client’s I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) which is very informant information to their account. When people are in need, we often give them gift cards from grocery stores such as ShopRite, Stop & Shop, or Big Y.
We also offer contacts and links to companies that manufacture anti-seizure medication and assistance with anti-seizure medication. We highly recommend everyone whether they have Epilepsy, or any medical condition, please place their prescriptions on a ninety-day mail-order program and have their doctors submit new prescriptions in mid-November so they will carry over to the next year. When deemed necessary, we offer guidance for people who need seizure-alert dogs.

Making people Aware of Epilepsy in any way I can is a self-fulfilling prophecy for me.
