Purple Day is International Epilepsy Awareness Day and is held every year on 26 March.
Purple Day was created by Cassidy Megan in 2008 and was motivated by her own struggles with epilepsy.
In Scotland, around 55,000 people have epilepsy. Every year, Epilepsy Scotland work to get politicians, business leaders, schools, health professionals and members of the public thinking about, talking about and raising money for those affected by epilepsy.
Purple Day is a great opportunity to get people talking about epilepsy and dispel the myths and stigma attached to the condition.
To promote the campaign, we will be using the hashtag #purpleday2020.
