Epilepsy is the world's most common serious brain disorder and is characterised by a tendency to have recurrent seizures. A seizure is the physical sign that there has been a disruption to the normal functioning of the brain. Most seizures are spontaneous and brief yet self-limiting and can involve loss of consciousness, a range of unusual movements, odd feelings and sensations or changed behaviour.
Increased community awareness and understanding of epilepsy can reduce its impact on those who are diagnosed with this condition.
These Speaking from Experience clips feature seven young people talking about the impact that Epilepsy has had on their lives. It was produced in partnership with The Epilepsy Foundation of Victoria.
