Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , You might check with your local Epilepsy Foundation to see what they offer. Go to www.epilepsy.com & look up your local Epilepsy Foundation & it will have a list of programs & such things that it offers, here’s a couple things it said: “Men's Support Group

Dates for 2022 are not yet available. If you are interested in this group, please reach out to Darcy at (Email address can only be seen by the question and answer creators)

Studio - E

This FREE art therapy program offered exclusively to adults living with epilepsy, with monthly sessions on Thursdays and Saturdays. This is a fun group for individuals interested in expressing their thoughts through art. The first program for 2022 will be on Saturday, February 12. Please contact Darcy at (Email address can only be seen by the question and answer creators) with any questions, to register and for additional information regarding upcoming dates. Registration is required.“. It looks like your local Epilepsy Foundation is in Albany, NY. For all we know they might not have updated their website & might have already started offering virtual support groups but they offer an e-mail to contact them & ask. I also shared the info about the Studio E painting class that you could ask them about also if you want. Last September 2021 my local Epilepsy Foundation invited me to participate in the Zoom painting class they had & they provided the materials & for 1 Saturday a week for 3 weeks we painted on a canvas & were given a topic but were always welcome to paint whatever we wanted. On the 4th week we picked one of our 3 paintings & showed it to everyone & told the story behind it. So you could also go to Google & look up your local Epilepsy Foundation in Albany, NY. & see if you can find a website for that specific location or area. Hope this helps some. Your friend in Texas, Becky
