Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee


The Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast Tennessee is a non-profit 501(c)(3) agency providing educational, vocational, outreach and advocacy services to people with epilepsy, their families and their communities. We are an affiliate of Epilepsy Foundation of America and a United Way of Chattanooga participating organization.  Our resources are always free.  Please let us know what we can do to help.

We will work to insure that people with seizure disorders are able to participate in all life experiences and overcome the challenges created by life with epilepsy.

Client thoughts:

I had epilepsy for several years before finding the Epilepsy Foundation. Before then I had been given sporadic care at best and knew very little about my condition. I felt much better-equipped to deal with it once I given the information I needed.  The help I was given with medication was lifesaving. Just knowing there is a place to go that offers support relieves my mind so much. “Thank you” can't begin to convey my gratitude.   ~ Jami, Apison, TN

When my son was diagnosed with epilepsy, the Epilepsy Foundation of Southeast TN helped our family to develop a 504/Individualized Education Program to provide to the local school system. The Epilepsy Foundation has provided multiple resources, answered many questions that we have had, and been an answered prayer. This area is very blessed to have these resources.  ~ Amanda, Old Fort, TN

A patient was having a seizure during their appointment where I work, and the doctor said it wasn't a seizure because people can not walk during a seizure.  I stood my ground with the group of staff, explaining that I had seen a video of it during my recent Seizure Recognition and First Aid training from Epilepsy Foundation.  ~ John, Chattanooga, TN
