When you have a condition such as ME/CFS, it’s easy to feel alone and become socially isolated. Family or friends may not understand what you’re going through, you may have had to give up work or study, and you may have trouble getting around and interacting with others. Our Connect with ME Peer Support Program aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people affected by ME/CFS by connecting them with peers who are going through similar experiences.
The Health Issues Centre in collaboration with several chronic disease organisations, is running two free regional peer support group leader forums in Shepparton and Traralgon. These forums are open to Volunteer leaders, group members or community members interested in starting a new peer support group as a volunteer.
This is a fabulous opportunity for participants to meet and network with each other, share experiences and develop skills that support quality, responsive and sustainable peer support in our communities and celebrate the fantastic work already happening across Victoria.
