Five good reasons for joining and staying with the Society

  1. We know ME/CFS is a physical illness. No one should be telling you that “it’s all in the mind”.
  2. Throughout the year, we campaign for recognition for everyone with the illness. This cannot come without greater understanding and so we provide information and training too.
  3. We work to improve understanding of the condition by health services, medical professionals, educators and the general public.
  4. Our members are connected by their shared understanding of this condition and their combined voice is what drives the work of the Society.
  5. We communicate the latest ME/CFS news, medical research and personal stories in our highly respected quarterly journal; Emerge as well as on our website.


Full Membership is available to all adults with ME/CFS, carers and anyone with an interest.
