The Croatian Association for Epilepsy was established in 1998 with the aim of promoting, developing and improving the quality of life of all persons with epilepsy, as well as their families, and enabling a better understanding of the nature of epilepsy and the needs of people affected by it.
The group’s activities include monthly meetings (lectures givend by doctors or self-help groups), counselling (via email, phone or in person), organisation and celebration of International/ Croatian National Epilepsy Day and Purple Day, preparing and publishing booklets and educational materials (including First aid for epilepsy, Women and epilepsy, Living with epilepsy and Epilepsy in children), collaboration with other professional associations and societies, organisation of conferences and appearances in media.
The Croatian Association for Epilepsy is especially proud of founding our educational and recreational camps for children with epilepsy (now held 7 times), where children with epilepsy have the opportunity to improve their knowledge of the condition and lifestyle issues such as socialising, employment, and driving. The children are encouraged to reach their full potential in life and to feel equal to their peers in every aspect.
This year we have arranged special workshops for kindergarten educators and staff, giving them an opportunity to learn about febrile convulsions. The response has been great, with all workshops busy so far!
