Mental Health Services

The Clinical Department offers clients support and education with a focus on mental health wellness. Many people with epilepsy struggle with depression and anxiety in addition to managing a chronic medical condition. It is not easy but you are not alone.

Clinicians are available to offer support through FREE short-term, solution-focused treatment options. Services may include:

  • Meeting with a clinician to identify challenges and create goals to work toward change
  • Individual, couple, or family counseling sessions
  • Education related skills and strategies focused on wellness and symptom management
  • Mindfulness training
  • Substance abuse support
