Feature article: Support for parents of children who have epilepsy: Resources and ideas

If you ask a parent of a child who has epilepsy, they will tell you that there is nothing as scary as seeing their child have that first seizure because it seemed to go on forever and it was terrifying and confusing. 

And then, once the diagnosis of epilepsy is established, there are other challenges that the parents and the child face. This article focuses on the parents' wellbeing which is very often overlooked when caring for a child with a long-standing illness.
