Support Groups

The UCSF Epilepsy Center coordinates free monthly support groups that meet at our Parnassus campus and at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. People living with epilepsy, as well as their friends and family, are encouraged to join us for discussion and education in a caring and supportive environment. Please feel free to contact group facilitator’s if you have questions and want to confirm the date for an upcoming meeting.
