Project Uplift

Empowering people with Epilepsy

The goal of Project UPLIFT is to empower people with Epilepsy to improve their own mental health through mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral skills. It increases knowledge and skills, reduces depression, and improves quality of life.

Methods taught include challenging thoughts, behavioral activation, coping, problem-solving, and mindfulness.

Validated mental health measures are used to screen for eligibility for the program, and other measures are used throughout the program to monitor change in mental health.
