Epilepsy is more common than you think.

Every 33 minutes, someone's life is turned up side down with a diagnosis of epilepsy.

That's 305 Australians every week.

More than a million Australians will develop epilepsy in their lifetime, while 1 in 10 will experience a seizure.

Epilepsy costs Australia $12.3 billion every year, with the biggest hits to lost wellbeing, lost productivity, and to the health system.

Epilepsy does not discriminate based on age, gender, or ethnicity.

Contrary to popular belief, epilepsy is most prevalent among older populations.

45-54 year olds are the most represented, closely followed by people 65+
