Epilepsy, Depression & Anxiety

Mood disorders and epilepsy are more closely linked than you might think. Learn more about the underlying science and managing symptoms.

Depression and anxiety are common mood disorders in people living with epilepsy, and can impact overall health, increase feelings of stigma, and reduce quality of life. These conditions are often underdiagnosed and undertreated in people with epilepsy, and many are unsure of where to find support and more information.


In this webinar co-hosted by CAN-BIND and EpLink, two of the Ontario Brain Institute’s Integrated Discovery Programs, hear from experts about how epilepsy and mood disorders are connected, how often they occur together, and what treatments and community supports are available.
