Past campaigns

SUDEP Awareness Day brings organisations and people together to raise awareness of SUDEP Worldwide. The campaign has grown from strength to strength, with more epilepsy organisations, people with epilepsy, health professionals, campaigners and bereaved families taking part in the event every year. On this page, we highlight some key campaign achievements since its launch in 2014.

SUDEP Awareness Day 2015

The theme for this year was Are you SUDEP Savvy? The theme was chosen in order to encourage people to learn about SUDEP and ways they can reduce their risk.

SUDEP Awareness Day 2014

The first ever international awareness day was launched on the 23rd of October. On the day, we shared the Be smart, Be safe steps that people with epilepsy can take to reduce their risk of SUDEP.
