At least half of children with epilepsy also have mental health problems like depression, anxiety and behaviour problems. The mental health problems impact so much on all areas of life including family, friendships and education, that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence recommends the psychological needs of children with epilepsy should always be considered. However, existing epilepsy services are separate from mental health services, so mental health problems aren't treated as well as they could be.

In our study, titled 'Transforming the mental health treatment of children and young people with epilepsy' we are developing an exciting new psychological treatment for childhood anxiety, depression and behavioural problems in children with epilepsy. We are doing this by taking an existing treatment called the Modular Approach to Treatment for Children - Anxiety, Depression, Trauma or Conduct (MATCH-ADTC) and making it epilepsy specific. This treatment will be given within epilepsy services and delivered over the telephone or Skype, by trained therapists. The treatment is flexible so it can be given to parents and/or the child according to age and type of problem. Click here to find out more about the MICE trial.

The online platform is for the therapists and contains all the materials needed to deliver the therapy including the:
