SUDEP Action Day


SUDEP Action Day is a day dedicated to raising awareness of epilepsy deaths. 

Launched by SUDEP Action on 23 October 2014 (as SUDEP Awareness Day), it shines a light on the largest cause of death in people with epilepsy, helping empower people through increased awareness and raise funds for SUDEP research.

Last year’s event, saw over 84 organisations take part globally to help raise awareness of SUDEP and epilepsy risks.

We would love for you to get involved in this year’s event, to help spread epilepsy safety and ultimately help save lives.
