Helping Tasmanians With Epilepsy
For Over 45 Years


Epilepsy Tasmania is a not-for-profit community organisation improving the quality of life of Tasmanians with epilepsy, and those around them, through education, coordination and support.

20,000 Tasmanians have epilepsy and an additional 80,000 family members, colleagues and friends are affected in some way.

One-fifth of Tasmania’s population is touched by epilepsy, yet the condition still has an unfortunate stigma that causes much hurt and frustration:

51% of Tasmanians with epilepsy have experienced discrimination over their condition during the last year.
