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
  • and be struggling with depression or anxiety

This 8-week session takes place on Thursdays, from 6:00 – 7:00,  Jan 20 to March 10. It is being led by Rosie Smith, Director of Epilepsy Toronto’s Adult Services. This UPLIFT session is specifically for adults living with epilepsy, there are other UPLIFT sessions for caregivers, or with a focus on employment.

If you are interested in being part of any UPLIFT program session, please complete an UPLIFT form.
