Advocacy

Epilepsy Foundation of Michigan is committed to protecting the rights of people with epilepsy and ensuring that they have access to needed services. We do this both on an individual basis and on a larger scale.

Individual Advocacy – If you believe your rights have been violated or you have a conflict regarding employment, school, healthcare, public benefits, or any other area, we can help. Our staff will intervene to resolve conflicts when possible and refer you to legal resources when necessary.

Public Policy Advocacy – The Foundation advocates for public policies that protect the rights of people with epilepsy and support them in achieving their goals. We also empower citizens to become more involved in the legislative process. Our public policy agenda includes maintaining the motorcycle helmet law, increasing access to specialty care, promoting mental health parity, and much more.
