NEW!  Studio E. Art Therapy Program

The Studio E. Art Therapy Program offers group art therapy sessions for youth living with epilepsy, allowing them to explore their creativity, meet others with epilepsy and express themselves in an open, accepting and safe group setting. The program is free of charge and made possible through a partnership between the Epilepsy Foundation and Lundbeck.

Art is a natural way to communicate, relieve tension and express emotions. According to research presented at the 2014 annual meeting of the American Epilepsy Society, people living with epilepsy reported increased self-esteem after participating in Studio E.

"My original Studio E classmates were a diverse group of extroverts and introverts with different conīŦdence levels. Through the process, I discovered a lot of talent and passion in myself that I didn't even know existed. By the end of the sessions, I felt not only like I was accepted, but I understood what Studio E was designed for." 
--ERICK Studio E participant

Participants work with licensed art therapists using a variety of artistic media, including painting, sketching and sculpting. Because some things are easier to "say" through art, Studio E provides people impacted by epilepsy a unique opportunity to express themselves and open up about their experiences with the condition.
