About the Young Adult Retreat

Are you a young adult diagnosed with epilepsy between the ages of 18-30? We invite you to connect with others facing similar challanges, learn and reflect from each other, and gain knowledge to enhance your well-being at our annual Young Adult Retreat!

The Young Adult Retreat focuses on addressing the unique needs of young adults ages by developing a supportive network where you can share experiences and challenges. It is an opportunity to meet others living with epilepsy, learn essential life and wellness skills, and recognize and build upon personal strengths. Activities are designed around community building, socialization, introduction to relaxation techniques, exploration of future planning, and time to talk directly with medical professionals.

We are also looking for adult mentors who would like to help with the retreat by providing support and encouragement to our young adult participants.

Questions? Please reach out to Rena Loughlin for more information at rloughlin@efepa.org and 215-779-8828.
