Raising Awareness of Severe ME – A Call for Your Case Studies|15th July 2020

Katie Meehan, Social Media Manager

In the run-up to Severe M.E. Week (3rd August), we’re looking for people with Severe M.E. who would like to tell their stories.

We want to talk about the key issues that affect arguably the most neglected section of our community, and plan on raising awareness throughout the week commencing Monday, 3rd August.

We’re particularly interested in hearing from people with Severe M.E. and their experiences of carers, and the care needed for someone with severe ME.

If you or your carer would like to be involved, you must be comfortable sharing your identity and photographs in either the news-media (newspapers) and on the ME Association website and social media platforms.

If interested, please get in touch by Wednesday 25th July, and provide the following information:

  • Your name, age, where you live, and confirm that you have or have had severe M.E.
  • A short summary of your story and experiences: in no more than 200 words. 
  • Attach good quality photographs of yourself that you feel best represents your current circumstances. 
  • Title your email ‘Severe ME Campaign’ and send to feedback@meassociation.org.uk

Thank you in advance.
