Our approach

Whether you’ve been newly diagnosed or just want to learn more about epilepsy, EAM is here to help.

When you call EAM you will be connected to a staff member who will listen carefully to your questions and concerns. For example, we can help you to:

  • Navigate health and social services
  • Communicate with your school or workplace about your epilepsy
  • Connect with supports in your community
  • Find additional resources

Call (902) 429-2633 or email info@epilepsymaritimes.org to speak to an EAM staff member.
