We’re very proud to acknowledge and support this year’s #NAIDOC week theme of #HealCountry. Healing Count
Today (26 March) is ‘Purple Day’, a global initiative founded by Cassidy Megan from Nova Scotia in Canada.
The day is a great opportunity to build much needed awareness about epilepsy around the world.
Epilepsy is one of the most common chronic neurological disorders. Around 50 million people worldwide (including over 250,000 Australians) currently live with epilepsy.
Epilepsy is a noncommunicable disease of the brain, where there is a tendency to have seizures. Epilepsy can affect people of all ages, and people’s experiences differ greatly.
We encourage you to wear purple today, the international colour for epilepsy to promote awareness and dispel common myths and fears about epilepsy.
