Abstract

Psychiatric conditions occur frequently in epilepsy, and their manifestations are diverse. Evaluation and management require knowledge of disease processes relevant to epilepsy and to psychiatry, as well as the role of other factors that affect the expression of psychiatric illnesses: behaviors, temperament, cognition, and life events. This article describes a comprehensive approach for addressing psychiatric issues in epilepsy patients.
