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.

I found that my episodes of PNES have gone down significantly since starting the program.
An amazing experience! Very supportive and helpful! Thank you!
Project UPLIFT helped me and gave me hope. During the time I was having neurosurgery and had been hospitalized. It wasn’t my greatest time but UPLIFT helped me relate and keep hope.
I feel Project UPLIFT gave me new tools to deal with my anxiety.
