The mission of Mastishk Support Group is to “To empower/enable persons with epilepsy to take charge of their lives”.

Caring for a person with epilepsy is not easy and families often find their emotional resources spread thin. It is even more daunting to come to the hospital for evaluation with new and sophisticated diagnostic tests, participate in discussions involving epilepsy surgery as a possible treatment option and undergo procedures such as invasive monitoring of seizures for accurate surgical planning. The periodic meetings of the epilepsy support group are a source of strength and comfort for persons with epilepsy and their family members.The Mastishk Support Group then continues to be a platform for networking interactions beyond the hospital services especially following epilepsy surgery.This group is a ‘work in progress’ and getting families of persons with epilepsy through difficult times is our main focus.
