Connect with ME – connect with others one-to-one from home

As an alternative for those who cannot get to Peer Support Groups due to being severely affected by the condition or being too far from existing groups, Emerge Australia offers the opportunity to connect directly with others without leaving home. We also extend the opportunity to connect carers of people with ME/CFS through this program.

Registered participants can outline their interests and nominate a communication mode of their choice, such as letter writing, email, phone, texting or Skype – you name it! We will then try to help you make the best connections.

Feedback for this initiative has been overwhelmingly positive.

“It’s been an absolute godsend to know that there are others out there doing it just as tough but the toughness is halved because we can share it. We are not isolated any more.” Participant
