Established 1953

Mission Epilepsy Alliance Ohio is dedicated to supporting those impacted by epilepsy in local communities by confronting the spectrum of challenges created by seizures.

Serving Our Community Epilepsy Alliance Ohio is dedicated to assisting those affected by seizures by providing vital, unduplicated support services to our local communities—free of charge. We’re proud that 100 percent of your donation stays in the communities we serve. Our services include: education programs, individual and family counseling, art therapy, support groups, therapeutic camps, school support, advocacy, and our Young Adult Support Network. One in 10 people will suffer a seizure in their lifetime. The Institute of Medicine states 1 in 26 people will be diagnosed with epilepsy at some point in their lives. In America, epilepsy is as common as breast cancer and takes as many lives. Epilepsy is a disease of the brain characterized by recurrent seizures, and onset can occur at any age without warning.
