The Non-Epileptic Seizures Treatment (NEST) group was formed as an interdisciplinary collaboration of clinicians and academics working in Sheffield, Manchester and Leeds in 2005. The aim of the group is to develop and evaluate new treatments for non-epileptic seizures.

The group includes professionals from the fields of neurology, psychiatry, clinical psychology and psychotherapy.
