UPLIFT stands for “Using Practice and Learning to Increase Favourable Thoughts”. It is a mindfulness-based cognitive behavioural therapy program that improves depression, and overall psychological quality of life. Groups of 5-8 adults meet virtually for an hour once a week for 8 weeks.

The sessions teach valuable coping strategies and topics that include: coping and relaxing, monitoring thoughts, and preventing future low moods.

Participants must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • have epilepsy, seizures, or a seizure disorder; or be a caretaker for someone who is
  • and be struggling with depression or anxiety.

This 8-week session takes place on Wednesdays, from Jan 13 to March 3, and is being led by Stephanie Aniol, a social worker with Epilepsy Toronto’s Adult Services department.  This session is now full.
