Social media will play an important role worldwide in getting our messages out to the public on International Epilepsy Day.

On Monday, February 13, 2023, there will be a worldwide effort to get #epilepsyday to trend on Twitter and other social media sites. We’re looking for all social media users to post a photo on the day using a sheet of paper to display the hashtag #EpilepsyIs with your own personal message. On this page you will find blank templates and some examples to help you take part on the day.

Whatever you do on International Epilepsy Day, be part of the worldwide social media effort!

This International Epilepsy Day, you’re invited to share your stories of facing stigma as a person with epilepsy or a carer for someone who has epilepsy.

Your experiences can help raise awareness about the challenges faced by people with epilepsy and can also help educate others.

Virtual Art Exhibition

In celebration of International Epilepsy Day 2023, we will host an online art exhibition centered on the theme of “Stigma.”
