Introducing an Idea_edited_edited.jpg

Introduction

Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Long-COVID and Fibromyalgia (FM) are diseases which can turn lives upside down.  With so much stigma and misinformation about the diseases, it can be difficult to deal with the changes and challenges they bring.  We're here to provide emotional support for patients, families and caregivers.

Here you will find a variety of online resources and contact numbers for people and organisations that can offer help.  Feel free to contact us at any time if you have any questions. 

Immediate assistance
Crisis service 

Crisis Centre BCThe hardships experienced by ME and FM patients are often overwhelming. At the society, we receive many calls and emails every year from people who are desperate and feel they have nowhere to turn and no options.

When we feel someone is in a crisis, we refer them to the Crisis Centre of BC. This is an excellent service, with volunteers trained to deal with people whose emotional and/or physical situations are dire. If you feel you are in crisis, please reach out to this excellent service. They are available 24h/day and 7 days/week.
