Functional and Dissociative Neurological Symptoms : a patient's guide - Czech



Zde najdete všechny odkazy a informace ke stažení na jednom místě

Dissociative (Non-Epileptic) Attacks is a website launched in February 2011 all about non-epileptic attacks. Its written by a clinical team in Sheffield UK and has lots of useful information







The Non-Epileptic Attack Disorder Trust (NEAD trust) is a new organisation with a growing range of useful resources for patients including a forum.


NEAD Scotland also has useful information for patients including a live chat room and forum. Again the emphasis on this website is more on psychological factors and trauma than on my own but there is much common ground
