Primer Mepinho. The character, along with his crew, in a playful explains what the disease is and how it should be treated.

The prosecution of Rondônia cartilha do Mepinho created to help enlighten the public about epilepsy. The character, along with his gang - Dr. Li Li, Batatinha and Annie - in a playful explains what the disease is, how it should be treated, and debunk some myths about it.

In the booklet of the Panel of Mepinho, the characters explain the ways to prevent crises and reduce the number of cases of epilepsy in Brazil. The character Batatinha account that drug treatment can control up to 70% of cases of the disease. Moreover, he also warned: surgical treatment is indicated for cases in which seizures occur even with the use of proper medication.

Another important highlight in the booklet is the debunking of some myths related to epilepsy. People with the disease can work and raise a family. It is also indicated in sports, which help reduce stress and consequently the frequency of seizures.

<b> Disease </ b>

Epilepsy is a chronic brain disease more frequently in the world - affects 2% of the population - and at least 50% of cases begin in childhood or adolescence. The main feature is the occurrence of unprovoked seizures, which may impair the quality of life of those with the disease.

Epilepsy is not contagious and saliva expelled during a crisis does not transmit the disease. Correct information is the best weapon against prejudice.
