|How MEBC Can Support You
MEBC is here to help people with ME/FM and their families:
Our web site, newsletter, phone line, and support groups are ways to provide such support.
MEBC is also working to establishing practical support services and advocacy:
Most MEBC Board Members, Support Group Leaders and Volunteers have ME/FM. Accomplishing these goals is taxing and takes us time, but if we each do a little we can eventually accomplish a lot!
Support groups are a key way to find emotional and social support in dealing with your disease. Besides the understanding you will receive from others who know what it's like to have ME/FM, you will be able to share your experiences with one another regarding what is helpful and where in your community you can find the medical, practical and legal support you need.
MEBC Support Groups exist in the following communities listed by region. For contact numbers, please Contact Us first. We will put you in touch with the Support Group Leader in your community.
We also have contacts for Children / Youth, Parents, Teachers and Nurses dealing with ME/FM.
Various support groups have established educational materials in their local libraries. The communities listed with an *, have materials in their local libraries. Just ask your local Reference Librarian for help.
