Get Seizure Smart 9-15 September 2023
Epilepsy Queensland are urging all Australians to Get Seizure Smart this September. The campaign asks the question – could you help if someone had a seizure? With 1 in 10 people experiencing a seizure the campaign aims to educate the Australian community to:
1. Recognise the signs of a seizure
2. Respond with seizure first aid
Correct seizure first aid can save a life, prevent injury, or provide comfort. Recognising different types of seizures and responding appropriately can also reduce stigma for the person needing assistance.
Download our FREE seizure first aid resources and encourage those around you to share the #GetSeizureSmart message.
Together, let’s create an Australia that can #RecogniseAndRespond.
