On November 17, every year, we observe National Epilepsy Day to promote awareness among people about epilepsy, it’s treatments, it’s causes and its symptoms. This day was started by Epilepsy Foundation of India as a campaign. Epilepsy is basically a chronic condition which is characterized by symptoms like seizures, loss of awareness, fear, etc. It can affect any age group. Although epilepsy is a treatable disease. With proper medications and proper treatment, one can be unbound from the condition of epilepsy.

On this day, various events are organized to educate mass about the condition. Various hospitals provide free treatment and consultation for epilepsy patients.
