Epilepsy and Seizures

Epilepsy is a central nervous system disorder (neurological disorder) where nerve cell activity in the brain becomes disrupted, causing seizures or periods of unusual behavior, sensations and sometimes loss of consciousness. 

Anyone who has experienced these symptoms needs to seek immediate help from their primary care physician. An epilepsy diagnosis will require additonal speciality care and support services. 

Dedicated in June 2016, Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, along with Strides for Seizures and the Epilepsy Association of the Big Bend created the region’s first Epilepsy Resource Center. With a shared vision to help members of the community overcome the challenges created by epilepsy, the Tallahassee Memorial Epilepsy Resource Center at the Epilepsy Association of the Big Bend provides epilepsy patients, and their families and caregivers, with a wealth of knowledge in a comfortable, welcoming space.
