Someone has died

Someone you know has died from an epilepsy related death and right now you may feel shocked, confused, isolated and unable to believe what has happened.

You may have been aware of the risks or you may have just learned for the first time that they had epilepsy.   There may be many things that you need help to understand, or you may need to talk about what has happened.  Our support team can help you with:

  • Understanding the inquest procedure
  • Understanding the investigations
  • Understanding what is going on for you emotionally

It may be a family member, a friend or a colleague who has died from epilepsy; you don’t have to be a close relative to grieve, or to access our support.  

Research:
Understanding and monitoring epilepsy related deaths is vital in helping to reduce deaths in the future.  If you would like to provide information that may help us to reduce deaths in the future please report a death now.
