Low mood, anxiety, memory problems and other mental health problems are common in people with epilepsy and need to be treated appropriately and effectively. We work in close partnership with our neuropsychiatry and clinical psychology colleagues who provide invaluable input in the assessment and management of our patients with epilepsy who may be struggling with mental health problems. They also play a key role in the pre-surgical evaluation of people with epilepsy for whom we are considering epilepsy surgery.

Functional Non-epileptic attack disorder is a common condition that our epilepsy specialists will often diagnose in clinic. The Neuropsychiatry department at St George’s has developed a comprehensive service for people with functional non-epileptic attacks living in the South West London regional catchment area.
