The Hidden Disorder - Our Epilepsy Awareness Campaign
As part of National Epilepsy Week, we are taking the steps to raise awareness amongst the young and our community about a silent condition, something that affects many, but is rarely educated or talked about.
Together, UN:IK clothing and Epilepsy Research UK are raising awareness of the disruptive, interruptive impact of epilepsy and calling on the UN:IK community to start a conversation about this hidden condition.
By working together, we aim to reach a community of young people and ask them to check in with their friends. Support them to lead healthy lives, to be mindful of the risks associated with lack of sleep, recreational drugs or alcohol, and to be there for them when seizures interrupt their lives and they withdraw from social activities.
We’ve also collaborated on some special edition #ALifeInterrupted t-shirts featuring beautiful shots from our campaign film. All profits will go directly towards supporting life changing, life saving research.
Epilepsy can affect anyone. However, despite 600,000 people in the UK living with the condition, considerable stigma remains around epilepsy and many people just don’t want to talk about it.
Watching Ava's story allows you to understand the difficulties of being someone with epilepsy, it teaches us how we can act and behave, which in turn can save someones life.
It’s time to start the conversation about epilepsy. Are you in?
