We provide support and information for people affected by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) in the Canberra region.
ACT ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society provides support services such as monthly support group meetings, a self help course and Telephone Information and Support Service (TISS). We provide information about ME/CFS and FMS to members, medical practitioners and the public. We also raise funds for research into ME/CFS and hold information sessions and events to raise awareness in the ACT region.
If you think you could benefit from any of our services please get in touch.
Thank you for visiting.
The Support Group generally meets on the first Tuesday of the month at the Pearce Community Centre. Meetings are informative, interactive sessions usually led by a guest speaker. As well, there is always time for a friendly chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
Adults of any age with an interest in ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and/or fibromyalgia are welcome.
