Welcome to the ACT ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society
We provide support and information for people affected by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) in the Canberra region.
The 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.
MAY AWARENESS 2013
May Awareness is the ACT ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Society’s annual campaign to raise funds for research and to continue our support for those people with ME/CFS/FMS, their families and carers.
People with ME/CFS and FMS are faced with many challenges. These long term illnesses affect social and family life as well as education and employment. Many are too unwell to work and others can only work part time.
Young people at school or college require special consideration for attendance, assignment deadlines and exams. Some study at home through distance education.
