Episode 09: Epilepsy, Depression & Anxiety: What do we know?

Podcast Transcript

In this episode, CAN-BIND collaborated with EpLink to create this special podcast to explore what we know about epilepsy, depression and anxiety.

Listen as Dr. Elaine Kiriakopoulos, the Director of the HOBSCOTCH Institute for Cognitive Health and Well-Being at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Epilepsy Center, discusses the current relationship between epilepsy, depression and anxiety and the type of resources and support people living with these conditions can seek.

This podcast also gives you a sneak peek into a free webinar we will be holding with EpLink and the Ontario Brain Institute that delves into why depression can happen in people living with epilepsy, what to do about it and busting some myths about treatment.
