The Epilepsy Institute has made available ∼100 m2 for the development of a “Arts & Therapies” sector, in addition to the exhibit gallery located in the main lobby of the Institute.
This gallery has the advantage for patients and their relatives of offering them a space for presenting their artwork, or to exhibit the renowned artists’ work related to brain development or to epilepsy.
The “idée Arts & Therapies” sector constitutes a living-lab enabling the efficacy of the Env’Epi™ program to be assessed

Being particularly difficult to diagnose, epilepsy is today the disease that suffers from the largest number of diagnostic errors. It is therefore urgent to implement the necessary means to improve diagnosis and treatment for those affected.
In collaboration with the authorities of the French Ministries of Health and of Education, the teaching staff of the Epilepsy Institute, mainly composed of volunteers, will contribute to continuing education, training and support for healthcare professionals involved in the management of epilepsy.

The “idée resources” department, run by and for patients, caregivers and lay associations, provides social, psychological and educational support for patients and their families, as well as information for the public.
