- Epilepsy affects a substantial number of young people in the U.K., with approximately 112,000 individuals aged 25 and under living with the condition.
- Epilepsy can have a significant impact on a young person's education. Seizures and their side effects, such as memory difficulties and fatigue, may disrupt schooling, leading to missed classes and reduced academic performance. Supportive measures and awareness in educational institutions are crucial for minimising these challenges.
- Epilepsy often takes a toll on the emotional and social well-being of young individuals. Stigma, discrimination, and anxiety related to seizures can lead to feelings of isolation and reduced self-esteem.
